52nd Day - The Great Mississip

The temperature was a little cooler this morning being in the low 50s. The temperature did get to 66F today though. This morning looked like rain but the sun came shown through again. It really has been very good weather on this trip.
Gasoline in Wisconsin was a more reasonable $2.84 per gallon.
I spent almost two (2) hours watching a barge passing through a Lock today. I understand why it takes so long now though. The Barge is approximately 1000 feet and the Lock being only 600 feet, the Barge has to pass through in sections.
It was a three (3) state day today adding Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin to the tally.
North to the Upper Peninsula tomorrow.
Night everyone!
