A Waterfall-Filled Fall Tour


Eastern Iowa MINIs (EIM) and the Central Iowa MINI Club (CIMC) enjoyed another spectacular collaboration this past Saturday (10/13) as we teamed up for the 16th Annual Iowa MINI Cooper Fall Tour. This year’s drive was designed also as a tour of noteworthy Iowa waterfalls. The route began in Backbone State Park near Dundee, traversed much of the northeast Iowa bluff country, then headed west to the prairie with a finish at Beeds Lake State Park near Hampton. If you count the small, lower falls in Backbone and Dunning’s Creek spilling into the Upper Iowa River, our group enjoyed no less than 12 waterfalls along the way! While the day was a bit on the cool side, given the fact of nearly 10 straight preceding days of rain (and, as it turns out, snow on the following day!) we couldn’t have asked for much better conditions. The sun did make its presence known on occasion, providing for added highlighting of the vivid autumn colors.

Both MINI groups made a great showing and we thank everyone for making it a fun day. We especially thank the folks who came over from the Des Moines area on Friday in order to be ready to go Saturday morning. We hope everyone enjoyed the drive!
