Five days and twenty-five hundred miles later, we made it. Saturday saw us coming in off the plains and prairie into the woodlands. A few roadside images as we passed through Oklahoma and came into Arkansas.
Around 4:00, after about six hours and 470 miles, we crossed the Mississippi River and are now happily ensconced at The Peabody, an iconic downtown Memphis Hotel, just steps away from Beale Street, BB King’s club, and all that. Dinner at the hotel’s fairly well known dining room and a late start Sunday.
A few hotel shots, more tomorrow.
|The Lobby is pretty spectacular|
