I can’t even tell you how great Iowa is. You won’t believe me until you smell it and see how green it is for yourself. Until you make it out, let this short report suffice.

I began the day shopping and exploring Historic Valley Junction. Then, I took in the free Des Moines Art Center. (Yes, it’s free. But don’t be that guy). I walked in the park and took a drive downtown to see what I could see.

I ate at Skip’s two times that day, I think, and you would too. The next morning, on our way to Farrar School, we saw John Wayne’s birthplace, and every single bridge of Madison County.

That was my one perfect day in Des Moines, just prior to ghost hunting at Farrar School for Chapter 6 of Haunted Asylums, Prisons, and Sanatoriums.
