Nauvoo Pageant & Carthage Jail 07.14.07

Last weekend we headed down to Nauvoo for this year's pageant. The drive down there is actually not too bad (about 4 hours), if you don't mind looking at thousands of acres of corn and soy. After our visit to Nauvoo last fall, we decided to stay outside of town during subsequent visits (there's only so often you can eat at Grandpa John's Cafe). So we stayed in Keokuk, Iowa this time, just across the Mississippi. We headed over to Nauvoo just in time for some of the pre-show activities - they had pioneer games, singing & dancing, and pioneer crafts set up at various stations on the green. The Nauvoo Pageant was much more than we expected it to be - very well done and entertaining. The set design, music, and acting were all very impressive. The next morning we drove to Carthage, IL to tour the Carthage Jail and Visitors' Center. Despite the high humidity and ferocious mosquitoes, we had a great time!
