Day Fourteen: Marion to Independence
We left quite early, but then the trip didn't take as long as we'd thought, so we got to Independence in time to go over and see Harry Truman's house.
It is still brown and dry...
It is flat! out here
Welcome to Missouri!
You can't get to Maryland from here (!) but the road to Earth City is still open...
I wonder if this cools you off?
A nice mix of names: Auxvasse, Mexico, Fulton
A different mix (also: why a Churchill museum here?)
The Missouri River
Independence, home of Harry Truman (almost didn't get the sign at all!)
Truman National Historic Site
A mule tour. Poor mules - it was hot
The courthouse, with Truman by the side
Truman (we didn't walk back that way so I didn't get his front, but look how he's holding his cane.
The signs for the house
And the house itself - you can't take pictures inside.
