We pack up and leave Indiana by 11:00 am and head off to Missouri. The drive is good with clear sunny skies. Traffic is moving well and all I have to do is look out at the scenery (and knit of course!). The land here is also agricultural and flat.

We decided that we absolutely could not bypass Saint Louis and it's infamous gateway arch...boy were we surprised when we got a look at the city itself.
