Corn Country

Today's travels have mostly been in Iowa, tonight we are near Bellevue, IA between Davenport and Dubuque right on the banks of the Mississippi.  The campground is named Spruce Creek Campground and our campsite is backed up to the banks of that creek.  The water in that creek at this location must be just backup from the river as there isn't any noticeable flow.  Leaves on the surface seem to not be moving toward the river.  Anyway this is a real nice County park campground with electric connection to run the AC and we are right under the shade of some large trees.  There isn't any television signal and my AT&T internet connection is iffy but the campground wifi is working just fine.  Here are a few pictures of this campsite.

As to the corn country comment we definitely are there.  Farm fields that we have passed today are probably 80% to 90% corn.  Once in awhile there might be a bean crop but corn is the king here.
