Another nice day of travel on our way north. It sure is a long way through Illinois from south to north. We tried to contact friends from our stays in Florence,Az, but no one answers so will try to connect next time. Still nice temps and a good day with some sun even. Still lots of high water & flooding around here in Illinois too. Got a few pictures today and found some places to come back and check out again sometime. On we go to Wisconsin,then Minnesota and get ready for our Biggest adventure - A summer in Alaska. Back soon
