Our travels, exploits, and adventures

Franklin, TN to Kansas City, MO

July 23, 2011

Today we left Tennessee and headed West Colorado-bound.  We drove about 10 hours today through Kentucky, Illinois, and a long trek through Missouri with a nice stop in St. Louis, Missouri.  We quickly figured out that after St. Louis, there are a lot of cornfields- hence the flurry of blog posts.  You’ve gotta keep yourself entertained somehow right?  =)

The long road from Illinois to Missouri

It was obvious the Mississippi River in St. Louis was really high because Lewis and Clark were underwater

The Gateway Arch in St. Louis

The Gateway Arch and Dondi- he was amazed by the engineering and construction that went into the project

We had dinner at the Old Spaghetti Factory which was in a beatiful old building then headed off on our drive across Missouri to Kansas City
