gypsy77, some people are just thin-blooded and need a warmer climate. I'd say you're one of them. I don't mind the cold here in Iowa, but was absolutely miserable when I was in Phoenix, even though it was, indeed, a dry heat. Today it is 10 degrees (or it was, earlier... not it's down to 3 below, I think) and I ran several errands in the car without putting on a coat. Obviously, you and I are just physiologically wired differently when it comes to cold. I think people need to experience both cold and hot to find out what they prefer and tolerate.

Amazing photos! So many people around downtown Iowa City too! Is it always that way, or is that because of a large student population?

Iowa is impressive, I just wish it was more well-known to be as well!

Amazing photos!

I'm certain that you thought Bush was a pretty boy. Actually, I think Obama and his family all have great faces.

These are wonderful photos. Just looking at them makes me homesick (all except for the '07 tornado ones), and I haven't lived in the area for many years.

I hope to do a tour of the Upper Midwest someday to visit places like Madison and Duluth, and now I know I must add Iowa City to that list as well. Great job on the photos! It looks like everything I dream my own hometown of Scranton, PA will become once the New Yorkers take over.
I agree about Ithaca! Lived in Sioux City Iowa my whole life, but had never been to Ia City! Looks like I would like it there as well!!! However, living in Syracuse, NY I did visit Ithaca...it was like this.

Hi there, can you compare and contrast Boise and Iowa City?
