Heading Home... (Oct. 5-6)

Well, nearly all of the last two days has been spent driving.  We've traveled from Hobbs, New Mexico to West Memphis, Arkansas.

The roads of Texas were mostly flat with long, straight roads...
and an occasional cotton field or oil fields...
Today in Arkansas, the scenery turned greener and hillier and more forested.  We took a side trip to Hot Springs National Park, hoping to take a nice walk and perhaps put our feet in the hot springs.  
However, the loop road to the tower and the springs was closed, and the Visitor Center and much of the park were in the center of town with no space to park while pulling a trailer.  Very disappointing, but it did look like a nice place to come back to sometime.  We passed a number of beautiful old hotels and spa bath houses similar to this one.
Tomorrow we plan to drive the length of Tennessee from Memphis to Bristol.  And on Sunday we'll be on the last leg home along I-81, which is familiar territory.

My next post will be from home.🙋


  1. What a contrast in scenery! See you soon.

    1. Yes, quite a contrast! Doug says what he misses most now are the rocks and the mountains. But at this point, I just want to get back to my home sweet home!

  2. I can't imagine how thrilled you will be to step on your warm and friendly porch, open that door, step into the welcoming great room, and finally collapse in your own bed. But what incredible memories you'll always have!

    1. You are so right, Bonnie! Each morning I've been thinking about drinking my tea out on my front porch. But, yes, it has been an incredible trip!
