Iowa: The Hawkeye State
   Iowa is one of America's largest agricultural producers. In fact 93 percent of the state is covered in farmland. Thoughts of Iowa easily evoke endless fields of corn. Stretching from the Mississippi River in the east to the Missouri in the west, Iowa is dotted with picturesque countryside farms and mile after mile of cropland.
   Its oldest city, Dubuque, dates back to 1788, settled by the French on the bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River. Here in the northeast corner, rough limestone hills and high ridges make quite a different landscape from America’s central farm belt. Mixed in with thousands of square miles of farmland, the state manages 67 state parks and 11 state and national scenic byways.
