I recently traveled to Hannibal on the way to Nebraska to see the total
eclipse. I'd been once before, but this time I had a camera with a nice new
lens, so I had an afternoon and morning of fun capturing the spirit of what
seemed to me to be a booming ghost town (Lots of tour buses and fudge
options, no groceries or gas stations that I saw). The town was beautiful,
especially the Boyhood Home and the people were uniformly friendly and
helpful. If anyone is curious, a gallery of the best images can be found at
Driving west, I passed on the exit for the Clemens Birth home - you have to
save something for the next visit.
