Drew is always wanting to go on an “adventure”, so we decided to go on one on Saturday. I had seen an article about waterfalls in Iowa and one of the locations happened to be close to home so off we went! It was a beautiful day with a chance of rain but we took our chances. We had camped several times in this area in the past but we had no idea this hidden gem was so close to where we had been. (I apologize in advance for the pictures – I forgot my camera and was using my phone) We took off mid-morning on our adventure and this is what we found:
We found the lake with no problem but it took a little trial and error to find the waterfall. Then as we were just getting ready to cross the dam on foot it started to rain, hard! So, we ran back to the truck, drove to town and treated ourselves to an ice cream cone to wait out the rain. It was worth the wait!
They weren’t really waterfalls – but were still neat to see. A fun way to spend the day, didn’t cost much money and we were home and relaxing by evening. A fun day spent with family! So much fun that we decided to take my dad and mom the next day on another “adventure”!
