The weather has been perfect for traveling in Iowa. I ended up in the North Iowa town of Charles City last week. I was thrilled to see the wonderful public art sculptures near the library and the city park.
Love the artsy chairs in the park.
Charles City is located along the Cedar River, which flooded to record-high levels in 2008 and devastated many towns along its banks. Charles City lost one of its historic bridges from the flood.
I was also thrilled to find a funky coffee shop and new bike trail in Charles City, so I'll be stopping again the next chance I get.
