August 16th - Nevada, Iowa

While summer may now be officially over (especially weather-wise) we still have one more installment in our series documenting some of the cities along U.S. Route 30 in Iowa.

Our last destination is Nevada, Iowa! Like its central Iowa counterpart Madrid, which we also visited back in March, the pronunciation of Nevada is different from that of the well-known Western U.S. state. The county seat of Story County with almost 6,700 residents, Nevada proudly identifies itself as the "26th best small town in America"!

9 shots were uploaded to Wikimedia Commons, with two added to the updated article on Wikipedia. Here are a couple of my favorites:
