Sunday, September 20th - MISSISSIPPI RIVER

Sunday, September 20th: Did 475 miles today. Stayed
the night at a Holiday Inn Express right on the Mississippi
in DesMoines, Iowa. That's the good news. The other news
was that the railroad tracks were "spitting distance" from
my room (see below). Oh, the other good news was that I missed a
torrential downpour by about 30 minutes.

The lobby had a huge fish tank with 4 Large Mouth Bass.

A quick trip to a nearby grocery store resulted in
a wonderful gourmet dinner!

Avoca, Iowa (western Iowa in the middle of
nowhere!) Picture taken close of intersection
149th street and I 80 (and, I repeat, in the
middle of nowhere. What's up with 149th street?)
