Danish America in Elk Horn, Iowa #travel #vacation

I wasn't planning on stopping in Elk Horn, Iowa. I saw the sign for, "Museum of Danish America" and said, "Let's go!" So we did. Who could pass up a windmill that looks like this:

We went before anything was open. Technically we didn't go to the museum. Just stopping to stretch our legs, mixed with having a good view was what we all needed.

Do you like windmills? 

I know some people are anti turbines. They are costly to fix, and birds can fly into them. Technology is getting better, so hopefully kinks will work themselves out. They put out a lot of energy. Oddly I find windmills of any kind fascinating.

What kind of house is this?

I don't even know what to call this house. It's not a sod house. There is living grasses and mosses growing on the roof. Whatever it is, I wish it was in my backyard.

I think the kid's wish they had it in our backyard too!

Here's the backside of it:

What's a spot you didn't expect to stop at, and really ended up enjoying?

I love windmills too. Holland, MI isn't too far from where I live, and you can see a few windmills there. We like to go in the spring when the tulips are in full bloom as it really gives it a more authentic Dutch feeling about the town.
