Road Warriors (Part 10)


Welcome to Iowa: I hope you like corn. All kidding aside, corn is pretty much all you see in Iowa (at least along I-80). Its claim to fame is that it is number one in the nation in corn production (no surprise there). They have the distinction of holding the first caucus for the preseidential elections (every four years, a multitude of presidential hopefuls gather in Iowa to make believe they like corn for a week or two until the New Hampshire primary).

I took this picture in Walcott, but most of the drive through Iowa on I-80 looks like this. Sure, there's the occasional corn silo or corn procesing plant to break up the monotony, but other than that, it's a lot of corn.
