Hannibal, MO. is where Mark Twain lived and wrote about his adventures as a boy in his Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Of course we toured everything about his childhood and his later years as an attorney, which included his boyhood home, his law office, the cave where he played as a boy and wrote about in his books, and the Historic Downtown Hannibal on the edge of the Mississippi River.

We stopped in Nauvoo, Illinois and took a horse drawn wagon ride tour through the restored village of the early Mormons and heard about their leaders and craftsmen.

Couldn't send pictures until today. Sorry I am behind.
