Loving Missouri

Well, I love all the states I've been in. Missouri is a beautiful state and offers wonderful opportunities to step back in the history of this state and our country.  Ever so interesting and inspiring.

The land is generally flat along the roads although there are some low-rise hills and ridges on either one side or sometimes both.
Harvest time was in full force today as we drove through.  Harvesters were churning up lots of corn dust but the guys sure looked like they were having great fun rolling around their huge farms.
We toured The Pony Express Museum which I found very interesting and informative.

Another stop was a tour of the home where Jesse James lived for 90 days and in which he was killed.  The story goes that he was standing on a chair straightening a framed tapestry when someone shot him behind the ear.  There's much of interest in the home including pictures, newspaper articles, and personal artifacts of the James family.
