    Iowa Hang

    Is there any interest in having an Iowa Hang. My trip last weekend to Yellow River pulled the idea from the back of my mind to the front of it.

    Yellow River is a beautiful little forest, a few miles from the Mississippi in NE Iowa. I have hung at all the back country sights but Brown's Hollow would probably be the best for a group hang, although Camp John Schultz is my favorite, albeit dry, site. It has 25 miles of hiking trails, public water at the ranger station and information station. The back country sites (4 of them) are free. I think the pay sites are 9 bucks a night but I have never used them.
    I have hiked here many times in the last couple years and it is an ideal weekend hike. I have used Yellow River as my testing ground for my gear before taking it on the longer hikes on the SHT.
