This is JCT US6 in Des Moines. The freeway is away from most of the actual city here, and it is multiplexed with I35 South. I have not been able to go to distant family reunions out here.
I80 splits from I35 South here in Des Moines.
Iowa is mainly rolling hills from what I remember. Like Altamont Pass in California (I580 East of Livermore) and part of I80 in Wyoming, there are a lot of windmills used as power generators. This is near Menlo.
This is between Adair and Anita. I80 is with US6 through here.
