Hey there!! Pikes Peak State Park, was our home for like 4 days, during early May 2019 ...we got to travel around there and come back for the evening rest and relaxation time. Not too far from Wisconsin (where we did grab lunch or our morning coffee run to McDonald's in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin. yum!! Love their coffee.) It was fun seeing old camping friends and getting to know new ones as well. This was taken at a scenic area right in the state park ...right across from the campground. Not a far walk or hike at all. We got to have a fire in their pavilion several nights. Wowza is Iowa cold. Well it sure was when we were there, rainy too. But we did our best and we enjoyed it all. So fun!! I hope I am not mixing up my town names, but with all the recent rain and such (flooding) Davenport their levees (I think I have the right word there, I tried to google it, but silly google is not liking my spelling? u tell me?) had been damaged and were flooded pretty badly ...maybe you saw that on the news ...we lucked out ...we saw the Mississippi River up ...but not any terrible damage. I think a lot of folks who do deal with water damage are kind of folks who just go with the flow. I don't mean they are not sad over the destruction but they are good hard working folks ...they know what needs to be done to continue their livelihood. I am curious what draws folks out to Iowa? I asked a few folks ...Farming? farms? What? Glad you did stop by. Have a great week. Take Care. Beth ( ;

When I see the name Pikes Peak, I think of Colorado and the Pikes Peak there. This is beautiful though. Thanks for sharing about places I would otherwise never hear about. Have a lovely day.

I think farming was what drew a lot of settlers to Iowa...I have not been to Iowa, but was right across from it. We should have went on over but we were on the way home....and once headed home, we usually just want to get home.

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over was a real COLD adventure but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece. 
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :

So many bikes, so many unique ones to see and just drool over. Are you a bike fan? If you can remember your childhood, what was the must have bike of that year, I bet it is here in mint condition. So fun!! Harley Davidson made bikes, not just Harleys??! Who knew? So many creators, just so so much history. Are you a history buff, I don't remember all these dates, maybe you could or can? Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care!!! Beth ( ;
