Back to travel pictures
The view from the 7th floor of the Blackhawk Hotel
En route to the Figge Museum on a sunny Friday aftenroon
And on the way back that evening
At the Figge
A fine collection of American art, including a scrapbook with drawings for
the war memorial that Grant Wood did for Cedar Rapids around 1930.
The Mississippi, as seen from the car, on the way back, looking very high.
The trip is just under 200 miles and takes about 3 hours.
The Blackhawk has a striking fountain in the parking lot
The cornfields would have looked better with better light.
