Lunch in Twain-Land
The further we travelled across Missouri, the more spring-time was on display: daffodils dancing along the grassy areas of exit ramps competed for attention with rows of golden forsythia bushes. As we traveled through towns, we caught glimpses of blooming crabapple and magnolia trees. And, amusingly, about 5 minutes after Bob remarked that we hadn't yet seen any wildlife along the way, we passed a lake filled with hundreds of migrating swans!
Tonight we're settled into our hotel in Atchison, Kansas. Our hope is to be another 400+ miles down the road tomorrow night--somewhere in Colorado, and only a day away from Taos, New Mexico!
