Based in Winterset, Iowa, USA, this site was created to share the exploration of my new, small-town life.

After living the majority of my life in Southern California, the move to small-town Iowa is a cultural shift equivalent to any earthquake I experienced on the west coast. The weather, the people, the architecture, the light, and even the air are completely different. It’s a perfect upheaval to launch a new adventure and stage of life.

Whether you live in rural America, in a large metropolitan area, or even another country, my hope is to share all the new things I see and learn with you.

I’d love to share updates with you. If you don’t have time to come back to visit the site, you can get one weekly update of all that’s new at the Intrepid Crone. Please sign up using the Get Updates form at the left.
