We had a terrific visit at Felicia's - but way too short since we are now on a timetable with reservations to get us through the summer and a deadline to reach Washington State for Gary's family reunion.
Felicia's old farmhouse is big and beautiful - they really have it fixed up nicely...and you could live for a year on all the wonderful home-canned goods in their basement! They sent us off with some homemade goods (corn relish, salsa, relish, peach and grape jam) plus other goodies like coffee and tea, not to mention some garlic chives in a pot, which we will be enjoying for a long time to come (provided I don't kill the poor plant with my notoriously black thumb). Hopefully, our next visit will be during the Trek Fest in Riverside, IA which sounds like a lot of fun.
From Felicia's, we went across Iowa to the western border north of Omaha, Nebraska and spent one night at Lewis and Clark State Park, before moving on into South Dakota. We are now in the Badlands of South Dakota and going from here to Custer State Park, then Sturgis / Deadwood. Will post again when the opportunity presents itself.
