And this is just a lovely photo of a perfect fall day in Iowa. But it comes with an important message. It's harvest season in our great state, so be prepared to come up on scenes like this for yourself. This viewer reminds us that the average road speed for machinery is 16mph, so slow down, enjoy the scenery and have a Happy Moment!
