Help Me Pick the Cover for My New Great River Road Guide Book

I need your opinion! I’m nearly finished with the writing and production for my latest guide book: Road Tripping Along the Great River Road, Volume 1. This book will describe weekend-ish road trips for places along the Upper Mississippi River, from the Headwaters to southern Illinois. I’ll post more details soon.

For now, though, I want your opinion on which of the four book covers below you like best. Don’t worry about text placement or formatting issues; I’ll adjust those in the next step.

For now, I just want to know which picture you like best.

    My vote is for #3. 4 is out because it doesn’t show the river or the river road. 1 and 2 show the river, but not the road. All are nice, but 3 has it all.
