Our first detour away from I-55 was to St. Genevieve,
MO. A few weeks before leaving for our vacation, we watched a show on
Discovery about how the town had battled the Mississippi and lost during
the flood of 1993. Unfortunately, there wasn't much to see - just a small
older town with a few historic houses. We decided to continue our trek
Also, the sign had piqued my curiosity
since I could remember. The restaurant looked popular in a Cracker Barrel
sort of way. After a quick picture, we decided to keep moving.
Kentucky was across the river at that point. It was
weird thinking we'd be there in less than a week (taking the long way
around, of course).
