I am always open to suggestions for new places to enjoy.
One of the perks of being a full-time public high school teacher for the past 25 years is that some of my former students like to give me tips for new adventures.
One such student, Autumn Osia, is currently enrolled at Drake University in Iowa. She has a true love for photography and adventure, much like myself.
Autumn shared her love of the High Trestle Bridge in Madrid, Iowa, with me recently. It overlooks the Des Moines River Valley at an impressive 13 stories high and a half-mile long.
