I am just back from a beautiful three weeks
of cruising with the American Queen between
St. Paul and St. Louis. Fall color should peak on the bluffs of the Upper
Mississippi River for the October 18th week. Lots of Sunshine predicted, so plan to hit America's Great
River Road! Click here for

Out on the Mississippi River, we noticed an
increasing abundance of American
Bald Eagles each week. While my favorite stretches are from Lansing to Red
Wing, truly we saw eagles all the way to Alton, Illinois. Noticeably more
ADULTS than Juveniles. Not sure why that was. Has anyone else noticed that?
