On our way to Iowa

first stop is Grand Rapids
we had a quick stop at the second rest area but it only took us 5 hours and 15 minutes

It was a short but good visit

The only time Elijah got out of the car after a nice long nap

was for lunch and he enjoyed it

Iowa gas 1.9 per gallon
fill-up at the worlds largest truck stop

Bruce trail Waterdown

Starting at the tunnel just past Clappison's corners

The first part we had to really look at our feet
so we wouldn't fall

They had some rain, but it looked dry

love a picture with train tracks

we put our feet in the water

walking beside this river with all kinds of cascading water

getting to the bigger falls of 
Smokey Hollows

Out look over Hamilton
