The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

What does the fog represent in Chapter 16?

I need 2 quotes with matching analysis, that describe what the importance of the fog, what it stands for and what it blocks Huck and Jim from doing (Freedom and the ability to choose their own course of action). And then how this relates (if possible) to his mainstream societal beliefs and his moral beliefs.

The fog represents Huck and Jim's journey to freedom and serves to cause confudion about their intended stop in Cairo, as they mistakenly miss the entrance to the Ohio River...... their path to freedom.
