Okay, fair warning: I spent yesterday playing with my new camera, so this post is going to be heavy on photos.
Since Eddie and I hadn't been out exploring much recently, we had planned to spend yesterday wandering around Nebraska. A nasty thunderstorm decided to roll in, so of course we did the only logical thing...we drove 100 miles east to Madison County, Iowa, to take pictures of the famous covered bridges. Driving into a lightning storm, I might add, because that's how we roll, yo.
This is Iowa, about 40 miles from the Nebraska state line, where I had pulled over on I-80 in spite of my husband's insistence that this was reckless and dangerous. Whatever, dude. A girl's gotta take pictures sometimes.
Also, we saw wind turbines, which are cool.
Wind turbines -- some assembly required.
It was windy yesterday, so this one was leaning pretty heavily.
Check out the old graveyards.
Because really, what else is there to do on a day like that than stand in the middle of an old cemetery and take pictures of lightning?
And a very, very dirty car.
