After our stop in Dyersville at the Field of Dreams we continued to drive north to Pike's Peak State Park and go for a hike. Once we arrived in the parking lot, Todd's boss called and we waited in the car for nearly 30 minutes for their conversation to end. I was so bored I started to take selfies and had a saying for each face. I shared with Todd after he hung up and he cracked up laughing. He loved them.

Above: "Will this man EVER shut up?"
Above: "Shut the *@&# up so we can go on our hike!"
Finally we were able to actually leave the Rav4 and begin our exploration of Pikes Peak another State Park.
Our selfie with the great Mississippi behind us.
There were a lot of flowers along the trails.
The trail began with a sidewalk and then became more of a boardwalk trail and many many wooden stairs.

We then came to the largest waterfall at the park.
