Iowa arrival

I landed in Des Moines a bit late on Friday so held off on most of my sightseeing for the following day.

Saturday consisted of picking up my race packet followed by a nice tour of the city.  I went to see the State Capitol Building (a beautiful building), took a stroll through East Village, walked the Riverwalk, crossed the Women of Achievement Bridge, and visited the Pappajohn Sculpture Park. Des Moines is a very nice city and the weather cooperated nicely with what started as a pretty cloudy day.

I ended the day with a nice Italian dinner at Cosi Cucina Italian Grill.  I don't know if I was just really hungry but that meal was one of the best meals I've had on my many trips.  Absolutely delicious.  I snapped a nice pic to show it off.

Enjoy.
