We are now in Iowa, birthplace of John Wayne, Glenn Miller, and Mamie Eisenhower.

Today we rode on the Boone Scenic Railroad, which travels along the Des Moines river valley.  However, it was not really very scenic, mostly just trees, and corn, with the occasional glimpse of the river.  We also visited their new museum, but no photography is allowed.  Unfortunately they only use the steam locomotive on a Saturday, but Cliff was able to go over to the engine shed to look at the loco, which is originally Chinese.

On the way back to the campsite we saw a great little car, very old; no idea what make it was.
