We left CT Monday morning and have traveled through NY, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and across Iowa. Lots of corn and soy bean fields for miles in Iowa. It began to rain very hard yesterday afternoon while we were in the middle of Iowa so we stopped earlier than planned. It rained all night and off and on today. We hear Rapid City, SD got several inches of snow. Hopefully it melts before we arrive this weekend. I didn't take this photo of an Osprey on this drive but we have seen several while crossing some large rivers including the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers. We will arrive to the Badlands tomorrow.
