I decided I would try to take a picture about every 100 miles to show how the world was changing.
Below is the picture from mile 0, a picture out my living room window.
At the 100 mile mark I had just crossed the border from Minnesota into Iowa and there is Diamond J casino.
Mile 200 found me at a rest stop just north of Ames, IA. The Iowa rest stops have historical exhibits. This particular one is all about transportation.
Below are close ups of the pillars in front of the building. These are scattered out too by picnic tables at this site.
There are tile borders about the building that display early trucks and cars.
Near the 300 mark I stopped to take a picture of a barn that struck my interest. However, later I discovered no such picture on my camera. I'm still learning with my new camera and from this experience learned to push the shutter just a bit harder!
Finally I crossed the Missouri River and had only about 40 miles to go.
Arrived at my friends' home about 3:45 in the afternoon. Sorry the pictures failed me at the end. I think I will try the thing when I drive back home in a few days.
Hope you enjoyed some views of a drive in the Midwest.
