Way back in July Willy, Jay, and I went on a road tip to the Maquoketa Caves State Park. These are not pictures of that park, but pictures taken randomly on the trip to and fro the park:
I just have to say, my hat is off to the Anamosa Fire Department. As far as I know, the Boone Fire Department has never locked horns with a dragon.
Also, I very badly want to eat at this Bluff Lake Restaurant. We drove by it and it looks amazing. Anybody wants to go on a 3 hour (1 way) road trip, let me know.
