We enjoyed stopping at this park with a huge cross overlooking the river. It's right off highway 51 just south of Wickliffe, KY. Pretty place with lots of history.

At the confluence of the Mississippi and the Ohio rivers. The views are lovely. This is a favorite stop of ours when we are in the area.

This is a nice place to stop and enjoy the view while in this area. There is a nice walking path. I am glad we took a few minutes to stop and stretch our legs.
