It’s a bird! No, it’s a plane!, No, it’s Superman!
We are on the banks of the Ohio River, at Fort Massac State Park, just outside of Metropolis IL, and across the river from Paducah KY. Fort Massac is the first State Park to be established in Illinois and was a stopping point during the initial part of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. It is a nice campground, with each camping spot having plenty of space, though only electric hook-ups are present. We can hear the tug boats pushing barges up and down the river while sitting at the trailer.
Paducah KY, just across the river, is the home to the National Quilt Museum, so that is where CA spent her first day, enjoying viewing the talented work of other fiber artists.
The next day we headed in to the small town of Metropolis, which is the home to the Superman Museum and the 12 foot tall statue seen below. Here’s a short video clip that somebody else put together that shows the area.
We’re off to Memphis for the next stop-over.
