The winding road goes through some quaint little towns and the trees are pretty in the Fall.

“Back to nature”

Really an area where you can put on your hiking boots and get a great work out and see some great scenery, especially at Hitchcock Park

This is a nice relaxing drive and very interesting if you read about the rarity of this type of soil.

“Not typical Iowa!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2012

When you think of Iowa you think of flat ground and corn. Most of it is, however, at the very western edge of Iowa is a different landscape. Loess is a soil that is quite unusual. Only in China they have a larger amount of Loess soil than Iowa. The hills are just that, hills,they are not mountains but they do rise above the normally flat landscape. We just drove through this interesting place on our way west. It didn't cost and their are many places to stop and get some nice pictures. It's worth a look!
