Burlington, Iowa

Snake Alley view from top

Still slowly creeping north.  In Burlington, Iowa, today.  We went to explore the city.  We couldn’t find much in the way of interesting history, but we did find Burlington’s most famous landmark named the “Crookedest Street in the World” by Ripley’s Believe It or Not.
Snake Alley view from below
Snake Alley originally provided a short cut from Heritage Hill to the business district.  The bricks were laid at an angle to allow horses better footing as they descended.
We are keeping an eye on the weather at home as well as the flood conditions.  We know there are several roads closed already because of the flooding, but hopefully ALL roads home won’t be blocked.
