Purely Iowa

Purely Iowa

   If you ever visit the state, you’ll find that it is uniquely different from Missouri, Illinois, or the other mid-western states.  Iowa embodies a sort of “rolling seas of grain” concept particularly in the pretty areas.  The hills stretch out as far as the eye can see, covered in farms and fields.  In the spring it all gets green and fresh; in fall, it’s golden and filled with corn and wheat stalks blocking your view (In the summer it all dies and gets kind of boringly brown 😛 ).  But in the winter. . . oh, it’s just gorgeous.  You can see forever and it all looks so open and warm.  Anyway, for a girl who has a particular fondness for Virginian mountains and North Carolina’s ocean vista, Iowa was surprisingly beautiful.  

So, since I’ll be leaving Iowa before too long, I went out looking for some photos that embodied what has become the true Iowa to me.  And I actually got some really good ones 🙂  So here is my Iowa (with a couple fun ones just thrown in)!
