Other Places Along the Way

We crossed the Mississippi several times, but basically went down on the Iowa and Missouri side and came back on the Illinois side, making several stops along the way.  We camped in Nauvoo the first night, stopped in Hannibal on the way by, looked at the petroglyphs in Washington State Park, then went to Mineral Point, MO and Potosi, MO, before spending several days in Ste Genevieve.  On the way back, we crossed the Mississippi at Chester, drove by the Pierre Menard Valle home, stopped at the site of Fort Kaskaskia, and visited Fort des Chartres.  A great trip!
