We had a pretty uneventful stay in Des Moines last night. This morning we hit the road and headed east to West Branch, Iowa and the home of Herbert Hoover.We started our visit to the Herbert Hoover National Historic Site with a stop at the visitor center, then we headed out past some blooming pasque flower
We visited the blacksmith shop, a reconstruction of the shop that Herbert's father Jesse ran.
After lunch we headed back outside to a very light drizzle. We checked out the Quaker meetinghouse,
