One of my goals on my journey is to take photos of the major rivers I cross. I had already crossed the Shenandoah River as I do every day so I didn't stop for that one. So on December 17 when I reached the Mississippi River I hopped out of my camper at the visitor center along the river and to my delight I saw a barge going down river. I made the mistake of deleting the video I took but I do have a good photo as you can see below.
General Lee is still highly regarded in these parts.
I crossed the Mississippi and drove onto Texas.
