Smalltown America

We were on our way to see the annual fall congregation of waterfowl along the mighty Mississippi. The view I had in mind required us to pass through a sleepy rivertown in northeastern Iowa.  You know the kind that has only one stop sign in the whole town. It was the afternoon of Halloween. Can you tell as we waited to cross "Main Street?"

Smalltown, USA. A very exciting Halloween for those kids, I'll bet. Nice place to visit or pass through! :-)

A town full of spooks, that it is.

We have more than one stop light, but we are still small town America. And I wouldn't have it any other way. Where else can you close off Main Street for a march of children?

Love small towns. They are a great place for kids to grow up. Our town recently got its second traffic light but is is for Walmart. Don't think that really counts.

What fun ... to run into such a sweet array of spooks and hob - goblins when you weren't expecting it. Good thing you had your camera handy.

Ha---reminded me of a time we were driving on the backroads in North Carolina.. We got to a town where there was some kind of demonstration going right through the middle of town... We had to wait forever it seemed to get through that little town..... ha ha

But--since I grew up in a little town in VA, I will say that I love small towns!!!!

Great set of pictures.
