Roadtrip 2019: The Great River

We drove from Wisconsin to Arkansas on The Great River Byway along the Mississippi River. While a scenic wander through the floodplain midwest, the river itself was often out of sight (the section in central Wisconsin is somewhat more river-focused), but when we camped by the water it was worth it.

Mark Twain’s Boyhood Home Museum in Hannibal, MO was only OK.
