A field of pumpkins.
Seems kinda late in the season.
Why are they still in the field??
Scenic Overlook looking North.
The Mighty Mississippi.
Beautiful fall colors at the overlook
Colors so bright it almost hurt my eyes.
Scenic Overlook looking South.
Mississippi River in the distance.
The parking area at the scenic overlook was gorgeous!!
Clarksville Riverwalk entrance.
Take the last train to Clarksville.
I had stopped here on my way back from Hannibal.
On my way there, as I passed the Lock and Dam I spotted a Bald Eagle.
My first one of the season.
I plan for me and the children to visit one of the Eagle Days
exhibits at either the Clarksville or Winfield Lock and Dam
Lock and Dam 24
DH's father worked at this Lock and Dam many years ago
and was also Lockmaster at the Winfield Lock and Dam for a few
years until 1993 after the big flood when he retired.
Along the shore of the Mississippi River looking South
A Barge coming.
A bit misty in the distance.
A Barge going.
Even mistier since it was drizzling rain.
It was a really windy today.
This appears to be water spraying against the rocks.
A wonderful day for sure!! Wish I had had a bit more time. I would have liked to have visited some of the local shops and some of the antique stores I passed along the way. Maybe next time?
