Starting on the trip to Omaha, NE. Need to go there to finish off the 48 states. Varying opinions on how much there really is to see there. Need to go the the Zoo, and the Old Market historic district. Not sure if we are going to reach Nebraska tomorrow, but we’ll head in that direction.
Starting out around 9 am on I35 South toward Des Moines, IA. Three are a few things we would like to check out in Iowa as well.
The Hemken Collection
Antique car collection in Iowa. Turns out to be closed. Moving on.
Drove to the visitor center to get some information and maps. Nice lady there, showed us where to go. Since we were in the area of the John Wayne birth place and museum, we started there.
Seems like the place is famous for bridges as well. Here are some of them.
Bonnie and Clyde
This monument shows where the first western train robbery by Jesse James occurred on July 21, 1873. It has the actual track Jesse James separated to derail the train.
Dinner at Texas Roadhouse. In Council Bluffs, IA. Had pork chops.
Lots of driving today, mostly due to the fact that some of the places we wanted to go was closed. Now we have plenty of time.
