OK. How’s a person wind up in northeastern Iowa in the first place? Suppose you’re trying to get from Fargo, North Dakota to St. Joseph Missouri (Huh?)and didn’t want to take the dull freeways down the flats? Looking on a map, one can’t help but notice that the Mississippi River runs parallel to the freeways. Its a no brainer if not in a hurry.
Of course there are some choices and I figured the best looking scenery would be nearest to the river, and those are the routes that were taken for the most part.
