This Pleasant Hike Takes You To The Most Crystal Blue Lake In Iowa

There are so many advantages to hiking along an Iowa lake shore. It’s often a great place to spot wildlife. It’s sometimes cooler than the surrounding towns or fields, which can be quite a bonus during certain seasons of the year. And the views are guaranteed to be glimmeringly blue and beautiful. That’s all certainly the case at Appanoose County’s Lake Rathbun, located near Moravia.
