Sculpted by Glaciers
As I drove through Madison County, I felt like I was driving through a different state. It was very hilly compared to where I grew up in Iowa. This was caused by the glaciers thousands of years ago. I believe these hills are part of the tip of the Des Moines glacial lobe. The glaciers made their way down from Canada pushing all of this soil down to Iowa. And boy did they do a fine job sculpting the landscape in this area.
