Exploring Siouxland’s back roads

17 Apr

With nicer weather comes the opportunity to explore some more of the backroads of the Siouxland area. During the winter months and again in early spring and sometimes summer, the weather conditions can make driving dirt and gravel roads at times almost perilous. The roads tend to shift underneath your vehicle’s wheels even if you are only driving 3o mph or less.

But it’s on the backroads where history lies for a state like Iowa. Old abandoned homesteads and equipment remain there unused. Sometimes collected, other times discarded. The history behind these places and items have their own stories that would be insightful at best and informational from a time period that no longer exists.
