Mississippi River Day 65 (Sterling Island, 1102 miles)

I woke up to a bit of rain, so I went back to sleep, waiting for it to clear. Around 8:00 I woke up to nice sun, and watched the clouds fading into the horizon.

I hit another lock at 6 miles, lock #24. Apparently there is no lock #23 for some reason. Not sure why. I stopped in the little town just downstream of the lock, but there wasn't much there so I kept going.

All day I had a slight tailwind, so I kept going, to make up some miles from the previous two days. Its nice to get some extra miles in on some days
