Day 1 to California

A pretty uneventful day. Only rained once, really hard, for 10 minutes just west of Knoxville.

A pyramid just east of Memphis. I have no idea what it is for.



The bridge over the Mississippi into Arkansas.


The mighty Mississippi River.



We are now in Lonoke Arkansas, and it it hot!!!! 105 degrees.  Tomorrow we go to Amarillo Texas.
It's pretty boring countryside, but the drive has been pleasant.

Later,

Yep, that Arkansas farming country from Memphis to Lonoke is pretty uninteresting unless you are a farmer! I don't enjoy going that direction. Not enough trees for me. Let me know if it gets any prettier for you. I wonder what route you are taking through Arkansas?
