The ride through Missouri was enjoyable; with the exception of some persistent rain. The Hawks perched alongside the interstate were impressive. The Gateway Arch also appears as quite impressive and it was cool to see and traverse both the Mississippi and Missouri rivers. The skylines and city-scapes of both Kansas City and St. Louis were entertaining to the eye. From what I know of it, St. Louis is a good place to have some fun. Missouri is another state settled by some of my familiar ancestors.
For this trip only Interstate 70 was driven through Missouri. It was in fairly good condition. However, during the rain, it was very difficult to see where the lanes were located due to markings that were very difficult to see during the rain. Overall, Missouri gets a "C +" for its roads, from what I know of them.
