For Memorial Day I rode part of the Madison County Transit Confluence Trail which tracks the eastern bank of the Mississippi River just north of St. Louis. The path is poorly marked, the trail isn’t paved in places, and overall it is fairly exposed. I can’t say I recommend it, but there are some interesting views of St. Louis City and various industries along the river. Also, there is the occasional bit of wacky charm. This sculpture of a giant head bouncing away from it’s tiny body was on a bare street corner in Granite City.
