Iowa Falls - Sioux City / Beechcraft Bonanza (N6835W) / VFR

I'd love to say that Iowa is filled with thrilling scenery, but it isn't. I figured I'd try a flight outside the western U.S. for once, but Iowa probably wasn't the best place to do it, as there is nothing to see. I filed for Iowa Falls to Sioux City, and the most exciting part of the flight was watching the autopilot and GPS go from one waypoint to the next. The Bonanza doesn't have a terrain warning system, but you don't need one in Iowa, where the terrain is always at the same altitude.

I think I'll try to find a more interesting part of the country in which to fly. I suppose I'll keep Iowa in mind for pattern work, as there are lots of small airports and nothing in the way.
