In One of Iowa’s Rest Areas

It’s almost been a year since we embarked on that LONG DRIVE from Wisconsin to Nevada. We did it last year, right after the university class was done. Crossing 8 states all in all for 2 nights and three days, we traveled more than a thousand miles by land. One of the stops we’ve had before we rested on our first night was in Iowa state and theses are the shots I took of the beautiful Rest Area along I-80 W.



Stopping by for some restroom moments, around 7pm, before we retired for the night


The travelholic daughter was in PINK, thus, she’s my  entry this week! Hehe.



Isn’t the front of this Rest Area building so welcoming?

The lighted posts with designs of what Iowa offers  is actually a brilliant idea. It was a perfect glimpse for a long day of travel indeed!

I don’t know how this place looks like during the day. We didn’t get to stop by on our return drive and because it was winter, I will just assume that it displayed a natural beauty of black and white, since black was the dominant color of the building and some other surfaces while it was surrounded with whites all over.


And, did I mention that ALL rest areas that we stopped by in the state of Iowa have WiFi access? Awesome indeed! Thumbs up for the Iowa state tourism industry!
