Yeah, I'm young, but it's one thing I've done mulitple times each summer and can't wait to continue! So yeah, check out the website, the google images, you can learn what's new! I have some pics, but mostly of my friends and I this past summer, not really any showing the park sorry
Thanks, Beck. I checked out the website. Lots of new rides since I was there last. I remember years ago I went with a friend and we rode the Tornado rollercoaster 25 times in a row. We had a blast.

25 times in a row? Aren't there severe side-effects for that type of movement for that amount of time?

We were very young. The only side effect it had on me was on the way home it felt like I was still on the rollercoaster. lol

That's my absolute favorite thing to do! The most I've gone is 15 though.. and yeah, you definatly feel like you're still on it when you're going home! Maybe I'll beat your record this summer!!!

Since it's getting warmer out, how about some nice warm-weather pics?





Think spring!

Well, I realize Hawkeye wanted the Spring mood - but I'm going to post a few pics of Iowa that I have on my Motorola Phone, I just bluetoothed them to my laptop because we need some activity in this thread. I can't wait until things start getting green! I'm going to take so many pics! (Though I have noticed some of the grass has actually gotten green over the past few days, of course, green by winter standards... )

I do apologize as these aren't the best quality - like I said - taken from a phone.




^^I don't know what this plant is - it looks like a cactus in my pic tho.


I know, brrr. But I love this schoolhouse. It would be neat to go back when we still used small schools like this in Iowa. I think it is neat to keep them in good condition like this one though. Another neat one is Hickory Grove School near Keokuk.


Here's some green! But not spring green, this was just before the leaves changed. Seems like yesterday that I took this.

All of these pictures are amazing I love them all. I am moving to Iowa in ten days, and now I am more excited than ever.

First time on, the photos are great. The old country school brings back a lot of memories. I attended one as a child. Zion School in Lucas County IA. If you would like to read about it click this link. Zion School

I'm looking for photo's of Williamson, IA. in Lucas County, date from 1960 and older. I plan on posting some photo's later. Thanks.
