Go The Distance

Is this heaven?

No, it's Iowa.
Stop #1 on the trip was to visit Dyersville, IA - Home of the site of the Field of Dreams filming site.
 The Gift Shop.
 The view from Home Plate - the corn hasn't grown in yet, so it's not quite the full effect...
 The farmhouse.
 "He can't go back" - I didn't turn into a folksy small town doctor, bummer.
 View from the Right Field foul pole / Flag Pole
 "People will come, Ray. People will definitely come." - like that guy in the car on the path...
View from behind the pitcher's mound.

This was not the ideal time to visit, a chilly, corn-less May morning. They hold exhibition games in July and August with old timey uniforms and everything. This just happens to be "on the way" to several other places I'm visiting on the trip, so it seemed like a great place to start!
