Exploring Your Own Backyard
1 Dec 2020
Iowa has a landscape rich with outdoor opportunities. With lakes and rivers full of fish and wildlife, more than 70 state parks, thousands of county parks and nearly 2,000 miles of bike trails, outdoor recreation abounds.
So when COVID-19 began canceling people’s travel plans and summer vacations, many Iowans turned to their own backyards for fun and adventure. Rick Mosher of Urbandale was one Iowan in search of something safe to do.
As the owner of a classic 1979 Ford Thunderbird Heritage Edition, Rick had previously signed up for the Iowa Travel Guide and followed Travel Iowa on Facebook as a way to find nearby road trips.
