|Iowa has some cool rest areas! |
This one was dedicated to Iowa authors.
|Illinois has some nice rest areas, too.|
This is the view from...
|...here! Very cool lookout tower.|
I went a little out of my way to go to Springfield, IL, where I saw Pres. Lincoln's home.
|This is where Abe Lincoln was sitting when the message came that he had been chosen to run for president.|
|The front hall where he would have hung his hat.|
|The 'family' room where Abe played with his boys and his wife sewed.|
|The bedroom, with a cute little heating stove.|
|The house as it was probably situated when Abe lived there.|
|After seeing Lincoln's home, I rushed on to Champaign |
where I went to a Sidewalk Prophets concert with Dan and Molly.

|Z had a different look.|
|Coco helped Donna with some electrical work.|
|This indoor park is inside a church.|
