Everywhere small creeks and run offs cross the road and empty into the Mississippi…here we see one little place in the middle of nowhere.. just a scenic creek finding its way to the Mississippi..
Plus check out the Thorns on that tree…
The Great River Road has a lot of Signs.. Here we see one of the better pull off the road types near Nauvoo, Il.
I had a few more shots I wanted to post of the area around downtown Hannibal, it was a nice town.. very middle America!
I think Hannibal was experiencing some Urban Renewal.. and it was looking better..
Jen and I toured through the area and I talked her into Painting a fence!
The Tour Continued in Hannibal, we ventured further downtown and found the carnival and some of the main Mark Twain Areas..
Jen and I scored tickets to Both Weekends of the Austin City Limits Music Festival this year.. so we got a Double dose of Depeche Mode and the Cure.. super fun.. and in the end… The Rain fell..
+ Some gratuitous shots of Chuck..
As we drove around Hannibal it seemed everything had Mark Twain written on it.. almost everything!…Plus, apparently he is still alive and you can hang out with him each night…
The Birth place of Mark Twain, Hannibal MO. We rolled into town and caught the tail end of the Annual Tom Sawyer days! First up we drove around town a bit..
We loved standing in the same spot at explorers hundreds of years ago.. the overlook was used by Lewis and Clark to survey what was to come on their grand adventure..
