Mississippi Sunset

2016 Out West, Illinois, Road Trip

Just north of the Quad Cities, we scored a site in the Fisherman’s Corner COE campground with a view of the the mighty Mississippi. As night falls we can watch the red and green lights of the barges move along this great waterway. We’re reflecting on the fact that Karen’s GG-Grandfather lived on the Illinois bank of the Mississippi at the same time that Samuel Clemens was growing up on the Missouri bank. One of the significant features of this summertime experience is the incredible hot and muggy weather we’re having right now!
