Start: 7:30 AM- Alton Illinois

Total dist: 149 miles
Weather: Overcast in morning becoming clear in the afternoon - warm
Notes: My first go at locking through a lock. Passed the St. Louis arch at about noon.
Yesterday I traded a few miles of downstream progress in order to sleep in comfort but the payoff of starting the day fresh and ready was worth it.
