A lake side view in Siouxland, Storm Lake

22 Nov

Another community I have known about but just never got around to visiting in Siouxland is Storm Lake, Iowa. The community sits on a lake which is only a few block walk from downtown and borders Buena Vista University which also resides in the community. It is another community that is pleasant to walk about and see the community. Taking a stroll along a path in a park next to the lake was delightful. The downtown area has older historical buildings, if not by a national registry, at least by the age of some of the buildings, many of which are still in use. But as winter closes in, the chance to take those slow leisurely strolls are coming to an end, as the cold prairie wind drops the temperature a few degrees and encourages people to raise their heart rate by doing more brisk walks, which is not a bad idea.
