Camped on the banks of the Mighty Mississippi or should I say the Muddy Mississippi…swollen with rain run-off from some big time midwest summer storms. Two long days of driving across Nebraska and Iowa…the heartland of America, the breadbasket of the USA, with fields upon fields of corn, soybeans and whatever else they grow here. Because of the over abundance of rain this spring the land is verdant and lush, the crops healthy and robust. The hearty winds formed waves of multiple colors of green today along the roadside fields of weeds and crops.

In Iowa the playgrounds are even constructed of old tractor tires.
Should hit Michigan tomorrow. Sally and I are getting ready for a swim in the BIG COLD lake!
