Response to Hawkeye Point, Iowa (1,670 feet)
Our first highpoint! Drove the 160 miles from Prior Lake, MN, to Worthington, and south into Iowa. No trouble finding the highway sign, second driveway, or water 'tower'. 47 degrees - very cool and windy. One gray tiger kitten greeted us, and daughter Kelly made friends quickly. The crops were all out, so the view was unobstructed in all directions. Picked up a keychain, signed the book, and knocked on Mrs Sterler's door. She was there, and left her cookies and some old keychains. She even posed for a pic with Linn, as wife Sara manned the camera. Linn seems most excited about these high points - especially since Iowa is first, the old home state. Followed the Buffalo Ridge along I-90 on the way home. Suppose we'll have to join the HighPointers Org now!
