Meetup with Cryslyn & Andy!

We did it!  Cryslyn and I finally met!  A year ago I read a post about how she had travelled into Iowa for a Wissmann concert, so I emailed her mentioning that I'd like to meet up some time.  We exchanged phone numbers and chatted once, but didn't find any other concerts that would work for both of us to travel to.
Yours truly with Andy, Cryslyn, and her brother Noah.

Northside Cafe

Just as we were about to leave Winterset after enjoying the walking tacos, brownies, and ice cream at my friend's graduation open house, Papa pointed out Northside Cafe.

Winterset City Park

We visited the Winterset City Park to see the Cutler-Donahoe covered bridge.  This bridge was built in 1870, and was originally located 18 miles northeast of Winterset.  It was moved to the park in 1970.

Hastie Station, Outside Scoop, John Wayne Birthplace, & More

Cars at Culvers

Driving through Marshalltown on our way to Menards the other day, Papa and I noticed many classic cars on the road.  Where were they all headed?  We soon found out.  The Culver's parking lot was filled with beautiful, classy rides--and people admiring them.  It wasn't something we were going to miss!  I've paid to visit a museum with cars like these.
