Guy From Small-Town Iowa Uses GoPro To Capture Everything Awesome About “God’s Country” AKA Iowa

While I complain often about the cold, I love being back home in Iowa for break. The people, the places, the memories and yes even the snow, are just some of the things that make this state so beautiful. Dare I say picturesque, even.

That’s exactly what my friend Andrew thought when he picked up his GoPro one day, originally used to capture his study abroad trip in Australia, and started capturing everything that makes Iowa, well, Iowa.

His pictures are beautiful and creative and are sure to make any Iowan proud, and make any outsider want to visit. Why? Because #ThisIsIowa.

Like chilly walks with your furry sidekick.

And the woods are for more than just hunting.

Where summers are spent on the rivers…
