Landlocked Lighthouse

Lighthouse for tractors stuck in the corn field. Neat.

Lighthouse near no water.

Storm Lake Lighthouse

The last thing you expect to see in Iowa is a lighthouse -- and there is no lake in sight at this one. Just corn and soybean fields.

Turns out there is a lake nearby, one of the few lakes in Iowa, but the sight of a landlocked lighthouse makes a great picture.
