Missouri Bound

We made it! We arrived in Kansas City this morning, almost 20 hours after leaving Baltimore. That was a long drive.

Too tired for a long post (more to come the next few days as the competition and conference get underway).

Here are Patterson’s two competitors posing in front of the Pennsylvania hillside:

We stopped in St. Louis for an early-morning breakfast and to see the Gateway Arch:

Here’a a panoramic view of the Mississippi River & the foot of the arch:

After getting into Kansas City at 11:00 this morning, we all took naps since none of us had gotten much sleep in the car.

This is the view from my hotel room:
