We live in such a beautiful country

We traveled from Des Moines, Iowa to Cleveland, Ohio. That was about 650 miles. When you fly about everywhere you go you forget how big this country is and how many miles there is of open space. What make it even more beautiful is that it is fall. 
Here is what we left behind in Utah.

Des Moines, Iowa out side our hotel.

Beautiful fall leaves decorated our drive all day.

We drove over the Mississippi River. We also drove through Tampico, Illinois which is where President Regan was born.

I love seeing the farm homes surrounded by open fields and white or red barns.

I have never seen so much corn.
We spent almost 20.00 today for tolls.  We are not use to paying to drive on a road that isn't that great. Elder Anthony had a nice discussion with the hotel check in lady tonight.  Her sister is LDS. She wasn't interested but there was a nice discussion.


  1. It's sure great getting these daily updates. We hope you can keep it up while you're gone. We love you.

  2. I am glad you are able to drive now and not when it is snowing! It would be beautiful to see the leaves changing across the country!
