The day was closing fast, and we planned on getting to Nauvoo before dark, so we headed on toward Illinois.
Driving right along the banks of the Mississippi was awesome. SO big, and beautiful, and at sunset too! We pulled into my parents apartment right as the sun went down, and unloaded the truck. They were away at a performance when we got there so I made myself at home and started a quick load of laundry, nosed around and waiting impatiently for them to get home!
....And for next time; seeing my parents =), our time at Carthage Jail, and maybe a bit more about our first day in Nauvoo!
