Step Two:

Knoxville, IA to Champaign, IL

Fairfield Mansion
There are some beautiful homes in Fairfield, Iowa, including this 1896 mansion.

A quick run across Illinois in the rain. The plan was to camp at Turkey Run State Park, just across the border in Indiana, but the non-stop rain forced a change of plans.

On the plus side, an earlier stop gave me time to catch some playoff hockey on ESPN.

Pavlof Volcano out on the Aleutian Chain erupted on Easter Sunday, sending a plume of ash over 20,000 feet into the air. Pavlov is Alaska’s second most active volcano, erupting 40 times during recorded history.

A passenger on a PenAir flight out to Dutch Harbor caught the very cool image above.

The alert level for Pavlov now stands at “Red”.
