We started day three in Omaha and visited three sites: the giant fork and pasta sculpture, the Chef Boyardee statue on the Conagra corporate campus and Joselyn Castle. Then we visited the tiny town of Elk Horn, IA to see their Danish Windmill and had the bonus of finding a tiny chapel and an example of a viking structure. One thing we saw a lot of in Iowa and Illinois? Windmills…lots and lots of windmills.
The rest of the day featured a lot of driving. We crossed the Mississippi River on I-74 from Davenport, IA to Moline, IL and grabbed a room in Champaign, IL.
