We travel the Mississippi River on a paddle-wheel steamboat

(Last updated: September 23, 2018)


In August 2018, Gail and Russell celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary (four months late) by taking a one-month cruise all the way up the Mississippi River from New Orleans, Louisiana, almost to Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota. Our vessel was the American Queen, a modern-day paddle-wheel steamboat. We hope you have as much fun reading about our adventures as we had experiencing them!
