In 2012 I also traveled extensively throughout the Midwest USA. Here are some pictures of my stops in downtown Chicago Illinois, outside The Harry S Truman Presidential Museum in Independence Missouri at the IOWA State Capital Building in Des Moines IOWA and St. Louis Missouri.
Next to "The Old courthouse and "The Gateway to the West" Arch. both of which are part of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial. I also had stops in Michigan, Kansan and Indiana on this trip.
