Tower Rock - landmark in Mississippi River

Tower Rock is located near Grand Tower, Illinois, on the Mississippi River. Usually it is surrounded by water but this fall the Mississippi River was so low you could walk to Tower Rock from the Missouri side of the river. Hundreds of people came out to see Tower Rock and walk across the Mississippi River to climb around.
