Route P out of Potosi--Wonderful twisties!! As the previous commentator wrote---you can get back on 21 and continue onto Elephant Rock. After you gas up in Potosi--grab a bite at Peppers Restaurant before you catch P. Past the P turnoff--make a left between the funeral home and library on Route 8--in Bear Paw Plaza (shopping strip). Great burgers and "blue plate specials". Nice, clean big bathrooms and you can get a booth with a full view of the parking lot so you can keep one eye on your bike while munching down! If you have time after you do the P thing--and get back on 21 to Elephant Rock--you can do what we did and make a run to St. Genevieve-- back on 21 --to Route W (signs say NN) to 32 to Farmington--cross over Interstate 55. We tried to catch the Ferry across to Illinois (where we started) but alas were too late and missed the darn thing. Drowned our sorrows at Sara's Ice cream parlor in St. Genevieve at 124 Merchant Street Historic District and pulled out the tattered Missouri Map--did NOT want to go back up to do the 270/255 Tesson Ferry Road thing. Saw a bridge over at Chester-Illinois (home of the Popeye Statue) Ah haw--another way to cross the Mississippi!!! Took 61 south then route H (very nice--scenic--mild turns) then NORTH 51 to Illinois. A sweet ride for a mid summer 'd day!
