While waiting for the body work on my truck to be completed.

Aug 3, 2012 Fri

I picked up my truck from the body shop just as it was getting dark. The front end looks great. I had them change the oil as it was overdue. Good to have the truck back.
It was over 100 deg F almost every day I was in MO so I didn’t do much outdoor activity.
My niece and I made a trip to Confluence SP. This is where the Mississippi and Missouri rivers meet. Here are a few images I managed to capture.

The top of the pole is where the water level was in the 1993 flood.
