Highest Point in Iowa

It's most definitely true......Iowa does indeed have a 'Highest Point' and we've been there.  Last June, daughter Hanna and I were on our way home from Lincoln, NE with some extra time on our hands and since extra time is in fact what it would require to stop at Iowa's greatest gap from sea level, we made use of it......extra time.  Hawkeye Point in the northwestern corner of the state.

The wind she was a'blowin'......  These signs mark both the distances and names of the highest points in each of the other states.

The actual Spot......

....and finally, half of the famous couple......

  2. Doug,
    Thanks for posting the information on Iowa's highest point. It looks like I'll have to check it out next time I head south-west on a road trip. We're always looking for out of the way things to see, so we don't get stuck on the same old roads all the time.

  3. Hey Erik,
    Use caution, the air gets pretty thin up there......
