52 Fridays #15 – Iowa

I once lived next door to Iowa, in Nebraska.  We would travel to Council Bluffs to visit friends.  My memories of this place are the flat, flat, fields, the surprising cliffs rising out of them and the flat, wide, rivers running in them.  I think there’s bound to be a lot of creativity when there’s a lot of sky….

It’s been a while since I’ve shared fun facts about a state in 52 Fridays.  As I’m from Ohio, and it seems that people often confuse it with Iowa and Idaho, it seems appropriate to differentiate this fine state.

  • Elk Horn is the home of the largest Danish community in the United States (yay!  I’m Danish!)
  • The most crooked street in the world is in Burlington.  (According to Ripley’s Believe it or Not).
  • Quaker Oats – the largest cereal company in the world – is located in Cedar Rapids.
