After leaving Oklahoma (another new state to me), we headed for Arkansas where we proceeded to pig-out at Chili’s for lunch. Having no big plans to take side trips we made good progress through Arkansas , Memphis Tennessee and into Mississippi.
We did make one stop at an Indian Trading Post. (a souvenir shop)
They had some really beautiful things inside.
Yikes! I had this tractor when I was a kid!
I love the painting below… just gorgeous!
The animals, outside, were as interesting as the “stuff” inside!!
A Llama? (looking up photo’s of a Llama this is a “long haired Llama) Seriously?!
Old tractors everywhere!
Somewhere near Carlisle Arkansas there was a bad truck accident, on the opposite side of the highway. (Thank goodness!) I didn’t have my camera out to snap the actual accident but I did snap some (and I do mean “some”) of the backup from it. Cathy guessed the back up was 10 miles long..
…..as far as the eye could see!
All I know is I never thought it would end!
Once we passed all the back up we wondered why truckers weren’t letting those that would come up on the back up to turn off (if possible)… we couldn’t imagine how long it became or how long before anyone could move again.
In case you hadn’t noticed, Cathy did all the driving. I finally found out how she could drive so many hours and still enjoy it…
(Do you believe that?! lol )
Then we touched upon Memphis Tennessee and back into Mississippi to rest for the night.
(thought it was funny having the truck under the “no trucks” on the sign…) The next post will be the last for the vacation. I am sure everyone will be glad the photo’s stop! lol.. and I promise you… all of these posts didn’t make up 1/4 of the photo’s taken! So be nice or I’ll put up even more! lol lol.
