Mississippi River Valley - January 2013

I trekked out to the Mississippi River valley Thursday and Friday last week.  I had yet to remove the memory foam out of the back of the Jeep from our Route 66 trip, so I ended up tossing in a couple of sleeping bags and my pillow for the overnight trip - pretty cozy.

The weather was rather dismal - rain and fog. The western half of northern Illinois had experienced a lot more snow than we have here in the Chicago area this winter... and we got a significant rise in temps on Friday and Saturday. 

Unfortunately, it wasn't super for photos, but was able to get a few keepers.
