After a refreshing Mark Twain Pepsi, and an effervescent root beer at the Mark Twain Dinette, it was time to head out of Hannibal. We could have taken the train, there is a small station named after Twain's brother, Lionel, but we had a rental car.
To get to Illinois you drive on Mark Twain Avenue and cross the river on the Mark Twain Bridge. Had I taken a photo looking south you would have seen the Riverboat Mark Twain and the Mark Twain Caves beyond. Instead I was looking forward to the Land of Lincoln.
