We were pleasantly surprised as we traveled through Iowa, first on US 34, then on I-35, I-80 and I-29 to the Woodland Campground near Little Sioux. We remembered Iowa from traveling previously only on I-80 as being flat land. Today, the gently rolling farmlands were a delight to the eyes. After the recent rains, everything looks so fresh and green.
the sign for the town of Anita (which someday we’ll have to take time to explore),
and this wonderful metal sculpture of Iowa’s big crop, Corn. I found a website listing it as the World’s Largest Cornstalk.We’ve stopped for the night at the confluence of the Little Sioux River and the Missouri, both of which have recently flooded. Woodland Campground is an unusual summer fishing camp, made up primarily of permanently set RV’s of every shape, age and size.
We took a walk through it’s many winding streets, walking over 3 miles according to the pedometer, but still didn’t see all of the 700+ sites. The back of the park borders the rivers. We tried to walk there, but the recently flooding has left everything very muddy. The water of the rivers is still flowing rapidly.
