This time we will turn our
direction north to the wonderful states of Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin and
Illinois. As usual we left our base, aka, Washington, Missouri and headed up
the Road of the Saints. US 61. Once we arrived in
Iowa, we made our official visit to the nearest National Park site, this time, it was the Herbert Hoover Home. We spent the night in
Cedar Rapids. Then the next day, found our way to Interstate 35. We spotted
another one of our famous roadside sign hawking the Old Bradford Pioneer
Village, and the Little Brown Church. The pioneer villageseemed to be the final
resting place for most anything that the country residents wanted to get rid
of. The village does have great collection of railroad memories.
Allow at least two hours
to visit the village and the Little Brown Church which is right next door. After
our two hour tour, we headed to our next night stop. Bloomington, Minnesota.
