We trekked all the way through Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and part of Iowa in one night. After freshening ourselves up a bit in the farmland of Iowa, we continued on, not stopping until Lincoln, Nebraska. There we stopped at the Botanical ...

At 9:20 AM turn off 24 toward Goblin Valley State Park & stopped at the entrance to talk with park ranger about ...

After a truly awesome dinner - with great home cooking and a second night's sleep in a warm comfy bed, we both felt totally refreshed and ready to resume our US adventure.
Onwards to Maple Canyon! Wagons-ho!
