Vibrant sunrises often indicate an approaching weather system for which after the previous post, skies followed suit and filled in with dull gray cloud. As a result, the light was less than ideal so for this final entry at Hannibal, I ran the pictures through a few 'old timey' effects to give an historic feel. We didn't tour the Mark Twain Boyhood Home and Museum but we did spend some time outside where a well defined solar halo lent itself for effect and especially over The Haunted House On Hill Street that was closed for reasons unknown.
I would then take Ava down to the river where we watched a river boat pull into port.
Our final tourist stop was high atop Lover's Leap which affords a spectacular view of the Western Illinois flood plain. Per the namesake, this site has a somewhat somber legend affixed to it found HERE.
This should give an idea of how much ground I covered during the sunrise post from ascending to the lighthouse but then back down to the water front. A lengthy walk coupled with everything else crammed into the 72 hours up to this point made for both an extremely exhausting yet highly rewarding adventure. Thank you for following along.
