117 miles...We're in Tupelo, MS...

Well, we got going yesterday at our regular time...about 1100 or so..decided to take the back roads to Tupelo, MS and what a lovely ride that was.  We did stop quickly at a tourist trap called Natural Bridge...but drove in and right out..privately owned and hardly any parking.  We were afraid we'd come out and be blocked in for who knows how long...so off we went.  

Just enjoyed the small towns along the way and the rolling hillsides..everything was so green!  Enjoyed our lunch at the Welcome Center coming into Mississippi...got some information and off we headed.  

We paid for two nights at Trace State Park off the Natchez Trace Parkway.  We plan on visiting the Battle of Tupelo Battlefield.   Weather was calling for rain, and rain it did and it still is..warm though today, even though they're expecting rain most of the day and clearing tonight...it'll be colder temps tomorrow...but that's ok, as tomorrow we move on!  

Pictures will have to b later when I can get faster service...
