Why visit Iowa?

Iowa has the Field of Dreams movie site. The temperature is always nice in the summer (not so much in the winter).

To amplify the sentiment above: some places have unique attractions that are worth planning an entire vacation around. Iowa is, probably, not one of these places, unless you have very specific interests (perhaps you felt Field of Dreams was the greatest movie ever made, and traveling 1700 miles to look at a field of corn with a baseball diamond in it is your idea of heaven on Earth, or possibly you have a particular desire to see where Herbert Hoover or John Wayne was born).

Iowa summers can be uncomfortably hot and muggy.)

As he was crossing the trail approximately 100 yards in front of us, we startled him. Instead of scampering into the underbrush, he waddled down the trail for several minutes. We were riding at about 5 mph and closing in on him, while maintaining a safe distance. Soon, he turned, giving us a magnificent profile (as if to say, Yes, I am a badger), then jumped into the tall grass and brush. We stopped to investigate, but he was gone.
