As the days of this year’s summer travel become singly numbered ,I decided to get off beat with  some of my stops. Everybody knows about the Grotto in West Bend or the Living History Farms in W Des Moines..but what about the Barrow Gang capture(B) ,Iowa’s tallest water tower(K) or the site of Harry Truman’s campaign whistle stop at the World Plowing Contest in 1948(B)?? With a little bit of planning  I was able to take in all of these obscure Iowa feature on my last trip and still continue my sweep up of small Iowa Towns  see W  Central Iowa Photos
