Iowa was a surprise to me. Today's plan was to go from Des Moines to Ann Arbor, which meant I would travel across Iowa, illinois, a tiny bit of Indiana and half of Michigan.
I expected Iowa to be like Nebraska, only flatter. It turned out to be hilly, green and pretty.
The route (I-90) just skirts the southern side of Chicago, an area the locals call "Chicagoland". If I had not been pressed for time I would have gone into Chicago just for the heck of it.
I dragged into Mark & Mary's about 8:00, enough time for tacos and a game and then I crashed.
