Ellington MO to Farmington MO

7/13/11  Temps are a lot cooler today.  It rained buckets during the night in Ellington.  We even went back to sleep for another hour.  By the time Dave & Pete left it was drizzling lightly.  We were glad we decided to take a motel.  In the morning we met two young women from Norway just leaving the same motel heading into the rain west. 
These two are from Norway.  Ellington MO
It was mostly cloudy during the day. The hills continued.  Dave said he never shifted on a route as much as he did then.

Motel Ellington MO

The Ellington locals who were full of advice.

The reason we stayed in a motel in Ellington
We headed for Farmington, but stopped about 10 miles short at St Joe State Park.  Again we had a level grassy site, with electricity, and a hot shower.  Life is good.

Tomorrow we head for Murphysboro IL crossing the Mississippi at Chester IL.
