Yellow Submarine

This has seen better days. Now it just looks like a discarded, crusty playground object. Not worth the significant detour. We didn't even bother to take a picture.

If you don't want to drive down the personal driveway, then a good view from northbound I-275 can be had.

Out bicycle riding from our campsite at Winterset RV Resort -- nice find, and someone left a carton full of beads!

Yellow Submarine

The Yellow Submarine is a bit hard to find as it is down a gravel driveway. It can be seen from interstate, but you would have to know where to look. Weeds are starting to overcome it and it is in need of some upkeep.
