Up the Misssissipi

Close to St. Louis and a dramatic road is Missouri Highway 79. It winds along the Missisippi's west bank, providing stunning views of the river and Illinois beyond, in addition to showcasing excelent color in fall. My local paper - St. Louis Post-Dispatch - recommended rougtly 90-mile stretch of this serpentine, hilly road between St. Peters (off I-70) and Hannibal, which because of its Mark Twain history and lore, is worthy as a destination.
