Driving from Mt. Pleasant to Iowa City, have you ever noticed the three crosses on the east side of Highway 218? They’re hard to miss. The crosses are located one mile north of the Highland School turnoff, at mile marker 76. Hwy 218 is the Avenue of the Saints, you know. I usually make the sign of the cross when I see these crosses (although I’m not Catholic), a little reminder to drive safely and be grateful for all my blessings.
