Last weekend I took my family down to St. Louis to visit some friends of ours. On the way we stopped in Hannibal, Missouri. We stopped there earlier in the summer to visit the Cameron Cave. This time we went through Mark Twain Cave - the one he described in his novel Tom Sawyer.
I took a number of pictures during the tour. These are a couple of my favorite.
The bandit, Jesse James, along with his gang once hid from the authorities in this cave. Jesse even wrote his name on one of the cave walls (as many of the caves visitors did over the years), but in order to preserve his signature, that section of the cave isn't accessible by visitors anymore.
