July 26th , on our way to Paducah , we stopped by the hometown of Superman .

Of course , I noticed this 1959 Pannonia rig ( made in Hungary ) . superb aesthetic !

we stopped by the Motorcycle Museum , on Olive Street , founded by a man named Steve Smith : a must-to-see place by any motorcycle enthusiast : a remarkable exhibit of 100 and + motorcycles from all parts of the World .

the next day , Wednesday July 25th , we decided to travel through ( old) Route 66 to get to the house of Ulysses Grant , past US president and General in chief of the Union armies in 1863 . Again , a very informative visit .

Mid day , we visited the emblematic brewery of Anhauser-Bush : a very impressive visit of such a legendary firm

On July 24th , we arrived at around 7.50am at the famous arch . We were able to take the first visit to the top . What an experience to be carried up over 600 feet high inside a metal capsule ! Then we visited the Old Courthouse .

We stopped for lunch in Centerville , on Route 21 , going North to St Louis where we arrived around 5.00pm .

July 23rd , we leave Springfield around 6.25am , on Route 60 , and arrived around 11.00am at the Ozark National Scenic River . Another natural wonder that was so refreshing to look at under such a hot weather .

We arrived in Republic by 3.00pm to visit the Wilson's Creek National Battlefield . then we headed to Springfield to get rest and relief after a very hot day .

my wife told me that our daughters know well about Mr Carver's life as they learnt about it at school . Well ... new to me !!

July 22nd , we left Bentonville around 9.00AM and arrived at the George Washington Carver National Monument by mid morning : it has been an enlightening visit . Then we stopped to buy some sandwiches and drinks and had a short picnic under a tree on a remote rural road .

After unloading our luggages in the Best Western of Bentonville , we headed to the Pea Ridge National Battlefield .
