We inched ever closer to our destination as we traversed Nebraska, Iowa, and crossed the Mississippi River into Illinois. Both NE and IA are farming country, the difference being NE is flat for as far as the eye can see (they don’t call it the Plain States for nothing) while IA has rolling hills. The corn in NE looks dry (part of the Midwestern drought) while the corn in IA looks much greener. You see irrigation on the farms in NE but not in IA. We also noticed the wind farms in IA as well. As you can see, it rained during part of the drive. One of the more interesting pictures is the one of the mud flaps of the semi-truck which indicate which side to pass on.
Moving On – NE to IL
