Nauvoo Road Trip.     July 13 and 14th 

The drive is for Saturday and Sunday morning.  Saturday we will be driving from DSM to Nauvoo, along the Illinois side of the Mississippi river and on to Keokuk.  Sunday morning we will be driving from Keokuk along the Iowa side of the Mississippi river then a short drive north.  The Sunday drive is variable depending on what we decide to do.

2. We will have rough road just after the DSM Riverbridge after driving through Runnels.


3. We have about 50 feet of gravel on Sunday morning along the Mississippi River road.  It is where a landslide took out the pavement
