In a fog: The river views were spectacular Sunday along the Great River Road

Mar 14, 2016

Fog added a magical touch to the drive along the Great River Road in Illinois on Sunday. 

For much of the day, the fog held thick over the water at Grafton, the confluence of the Mississippi and Illinois rivers. By dusk, the blanket had thinned, offering stunning photo ops.

These images were captured by St. Louis Public Radio reporter Mary Delach Leonard who was passing through while on assignment. She stopped in Grafton for catfish fritters — and stayed awhile.
