Random photos & facts about the U.S. state of Iowa. Much of the content on this blog is also used to improve Wikimedia Foundation projects such as Wikipedia and Commons. Ran through 2009 and also featured on Twitter.
April 26th - No updates
A quick programming note, there will be no updates this weekend. Thanks for your understanding and we look forward to taking you to more random Iowa places in the near future!
Well hopefully better late than never, here is the report and photos from our trip to Ankeny!
Unfortunately both time and the weather were against us, but we both had a great time driving around town for a couple of hours in the afternoon taking pictures. We ended up with 13 usable shots from about 150 taken, and these have now been uploaded to Wikimedia Commons. In turn, 5 have been added to the Ankeny article on Wikipedia. Below are a couple of my favourites.
Look for some hints on our next destination later in the week!

Truro is home to the Interstate 35 Schools, catering to students from the surrounding area, and there was ample evidence as we arrived that we were entering "Roadrunner country"!
7 shots were uploaded to Wikimedia Commons, with two added to the updated article on Wikipedia. Here are a couple of my favorites:
