During the 30+ years we've lived in the ST. Louis area, we have countless times travelled the Great River Road from Alton to Grafton, IL. Along that stretch, there's a large statue across the river in Portage Des Sious, MO. We had looked it up several times on-line (Our Lady of the Rivers), but had never wandered over to Portage Des Sioux to check it out. Until this week, that is. This look down the Mississippi River from the area around the statue, pretty cool on a cold day.
