Iowa's White Pole Road-- Part 1

The road runs from Stuart to Missouri Valley.  Stuart also marks the eastern end of the Western Skies Scenic Byway.

The 140-mile long White Pole Road features long vistas, terraced hillsides, a Danish village and is a scenic alternative to I-80.

In the town of Casey there is Slayton Rock at the visitors center which is open from April to November.  The rock is a 500,000 pound boulder unearthed and moved to the center using a 3000 horsepower skid.

You know you're on the White Pole Road when you see the bottom halves of telephones painted white.

More to Come.  --RoadDog
