The Place In Iowa That Makes You Feel Like You’ve Stepped Through A Magical Wardrobe
With its golden plains and enchanting fields, Iowa is one of the most scenic states in the whole country. And, despite a somewhat predictable landscape, there are places with such diverse beauty that you may momentarily forget where you are. Much like a scene from The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, you may feel like you’ve stepped into another world altogether.
Pike’s Peak State Park in McGregor is undoubtedly such a place. While this thousand-acre park isn’t necessarily undiscovered, it’s certainly a landmark within the state and may just be Iowa’s own version of Narnia.
