On June 8, 2007, after leaving Clarksville, we drove up the road to Louisiana, Missouri. Since there was minimal cell phone reception at the campground, we stopped at a city park on the bank of the Mississippi and made some calls to let family know where we were and what we were doing and to catch up on some things.
The bridge in the picture is the one that we needed to cross the next day. We had already checked it out the night before and I was not looking forward to having to deal with oncoming traffic on what seemed to be a long and excessively narrow bridge. (Fortunately, there was no traffic and I can’t say that I strictly stayed in my lane driving across it.)
Louisiana, Missouri is a town of murals. We did a little bit of exploring and found a few of them, and, since we will be coming up to Wisconsin on a fairly regular basis, we will probably go back to look for some more.
