Today we drove from North Platte, NE, to Le Claire, IA (Quad Cities area on the border of IA & IL). Not the best day for taking pictures as the sky was gray all day due to clouds.
One stretch of I-80 in IA had several wind farms.
The view from our hotel shows the trees changing color on the other side of the Mississippi River. The sunset was quite pretty as well.
Had dinner at Sneaky Pete’s in Le Claire, sort of a copycat of Pinnacle Pete’s in Phoenix. The decor is made up of neckties hanging all over the walls and ceiling. (If you come in wearing a tie, they cut it off.) Good Iowa corn-fed beef and pork.
The most significant aspect of the day is what we missed. Yesterday we drove through Denver and it was 60 degrees. This morning, Denver received 10 inches of snow. That was one adventure of driving we were glad to NOT enjoy.
