5 Iowa adventures to book this winter

This time of the year is my favorite, when summer starts turning into fall, it’s truly perfect in Iowa – warm days, cool early-mornings and late-evenings, the trees change colors, PSLs become socially acceptable. But then, winter comes, and I become a horrible, crabby hermit talking endlessly about how SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) is real and how I JUST KNOW I have it. We’ve also decided to have Connie winterized and stored by a local RV dealer, so that means we’ll be camper-less for 4+ months… šŸ˜„ So, this year, I’m going to make damn sure that we stay busy outdoors so I don’t die of SADness inside.

Saylorville Lake Travel Diary | 8.7-8.9.20

While Saylorville Lake is one of the most popular lake destinations in Central Iowa, neither Matt or I had ever been!

So this was a new and exciting destination for us, even though it was <30 miles away from our apartment!

Lake Red Rock Travel Diary | 7.24-7.26.20

Happy Sunday! Idk about you, but I’ve got major Sunday scaries… Matt and I spent the weekend at Saylorville Lake in Polk City, IA and I’m just not ready to get back to it. I felt like the weekend flew and even though it was great, it wasn’t enough… I think some three-day weekend trips are in our near future.

Before I log this past weekend’s trip, I want to share our trip to Lake Red Rock in Knoxville, IA that we took a couple weekends ago. Our friends, Jesse and Alyssa, live ~10 minutes away from Lake Red Rock, and Jesse works for the Army Corps of Engineers so he was able to recommend a great campsite at Wallashuck Campgrounds.
