Hurstville, IA Pit Stop

Cruising down the highway, somewhere between Dubuque and Davenport, in a town I'd never heard of, I see this:
Traveling too fast in the wrong lane, I was unable to make the turn off to investigate. I decided that I'd turn around. I needed to stretch my legs anyway. The next turn on the divided highway brought us here:
We visited the Hurstville Interpretive Center first, which gave a little background of the area, before heading back to take a closer look at the kilns. The Center included a great interactive display of beekeeping plus a viewable, live "bee box", a bird display, information on area wildlife and plants, and information on how the kilns where used. Very cool.



After visiting the interpretive center we headed back to the kilns.











Isaiah, also ready for an adventure, disappears up the flight of stairs. I follow....

At the top of the stairs and down a little path I find this building hiding behind the trees...
 

following another path I find Isaiah tucked into a hiding spot.
 




 Legs now well "stretched", I was ready to get back on the road. Next stop - Springfield, Illinois!
