Gunter Hill COE Campground
We enjoyed a restful night at the Fort Massac State Park campground in Metropolis, Illinois.
We are anxious to depart Illinois and get as far south as we can today to avoid the severe weather that is expected to cover Illinois and mid-south region of the U.S. later today.
We enjoyed favorable, sunny weather for the major portion of our travel to Montgomery, Alabama. A few miles north of Montgomery, we encountered overcast skies. Upon our arrival at the Gunter Hill campground, standing water throughout the campground suggested the area had experienced a considerable amount of rain recently.
We will spend one night at the Gunter Hill campground.
Tomorrow another adventure begins.
