Despite the freezing temperatures outside, we parked and walked around the corner to see the river up close. Holy cow! The river was covered in pieces of ice. The sounds of the mini glaciers hitting each other was awesome.

A relaxing almost Zen like spot to just forget about troubles for a period of time...the river seems to cleanse the soul as the waters pass by unaware of any strife...

Overlooks the Mississippi River which can be stunning especially in the fall or during flood situations. It is a great place to view our downtown and our beautiful bridge at night. Nice shady park with benches and a small walking trail adjacent to the lookout.

This is a very beautiful suspension bridge. We want to see the river and the bride, so we drove over and back as we headed to St. Louis

I enjoy walking in the park and reading the information about the history of the area. It's a lovely spot to sit and read a book or relax watching river traffic.

Stayed overnight, so before moving on, we lingered in 'Maha Rushies' hometown and look around. Stopped to take in the view of the mighty Mississippi. Nice, bridge was pretty too. A photo op.
