Snake Alley is a street in Burlington, Iowa which connects portions of North Sixth street together.

A sign at the top of Snake Alley tells of its history:

The First United Church of Christ is on the other side of Snake Alley.


On the other side of Columbia Street, we saw some roofers working on a very steep roof.


Great River Bridge

The Great River Bridge spans the Mississippi River, carrying traffic between Burlington, Iowa on the west and Gulport, Illinois on the east.  Below are photos of this bridge and some of the surrounding area.  My favorite is the last one of the bunch which was taken in late afternoon.

A grain elevator on the Illinois side is visible through one of the bridge supports.
