Saturday we crossed from Illinois to Missouri via the Chesterfield Bridge across the Mississippi River. For safety concerns we had a police escort. Our jubilation over this mark in our trek was short lived as within 10 miles we begin to encounter the Missouri Ozarks. The culimination of that ascent was Eminence, MO where "...the rivers (Jack's Fork and the Current)meet the mountains...." Eminence was also the reuniting with spouse, Glenda, daughter Stephanie,and son-in-law Scott (the latter two live in St. Louis). We had a rest day in Eminence; that portion of our family became acquainted with and was warmly received by the travel group.
Today we left Eminence and rode today to Houston, MO where we have left apparently the steepest portion of the Ozarks. Eminence was quiet; but it begins to really bustle on the summer weekends with those who enjoy canoeing, kayaking, or simply tubing.
Everyobe remains in good spirits. Although I did accompany one of our members to the Houston ED for back pain evaluation.
Tomorrow's weather report is not encouraging - high winds, rain, and possibly hail. We shall see....
