Road trips are always fun. If anyone has some pics that are just sitting on your home computer, here is your chance to show them off. These are not necessarily OK road trips, they can be wherever.

Why don't you start, Redbird? Okay!

Here are some of mine and Bjb123's trip to Glacier National Peace Park in Northern Montana.

And we actually took these pictures, I've showed them to other people and they thought that they were from a post card.

We drove through Arkansas yesterday, through Memphis and stopped in Jackson Tennessee for the night.

Arkansas looks just about like eastern Oklahoma, with taller hills.



The worst thing that happened to us is I ran right over one of those big truck tire remnants. I had the choice of running over it with the tires or the middle of the car. I think I hit the axle but don't think I did any damage.

This is kind of a landmark along I-40.



This truck must have gone too slow through OK, and picked up some of those critters and bugs we always talk about.



Getting closer to the Mississippi River, the land gets real flat. Everything looks so green here.



Memphis is a cool town. Here is downtown while we are crossing the mighty Mississippi.



Made it too Tennessee. The bridge was not that scary.



I like that cool pyramid building, but this is the best shot I could get.



My DH is saying, "enough of that City-Data, get ready to go!"

Ah yes; Casper Wyoming. My ex was raised there and her mother lived there while we were dating. Took a trip to meet here while that was going on. 15 hours from Tulsa to Casper. Windiest town I'd ever been to. The locals were found of saying 'If it ain't snowin', it's blowin'.

Boring city, to say the least. At least Casper Mountain is pretty.

Peggy, you might want to stay away from those pesky tire remnants. They love to do things below your car.

You mentioned Memphis. I've got to try some Beale Street barbecue sometime. And that Mississippi River.......what a classic. That's always a great experience when you cross Old Man River. One of the true American treasures.

I grew up on the Mississippi, and it wasn't until I was in my mid-teens that I found out all rivers weren't like that! It was a real shock! But there is a lot of history around it - Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn [I saw their cave once], some of the smaller towns south along the river, Sainte Genevieve in southern MO is the oldest of the French settlements left in what became the Louisiana Purchase area, it was built in the early 1700s. Beautiful place. That's the only thing I like about cities, the museums and historic places.

The Mississippi is a great river. I always get a thrill when crossing it whether in the north or south.

We were talking last night about stopping off in St. Louis on our way back, going the north route home. I found out my husband has never been up in the Arch. He is in for it now. I hope it is open when we get there.

I was up in the Arch many yrs ago Peggy, it's really something to see. The museum underneath is really nice too. We watched a film showing the construction of the arch. Those construction guys sure were brave (or possibly crazy!).

Have a safe trip!
