Wanting to beat the heat I got an early start this morning and got to the first photo point on today’s list, Queen Wilhelmina State Park. From there I got to ride the Talimena Scenic Drive again, always an enjoyable road, on my way to Talihina, AR where I got a picture of the post office. Next was over to Antlers, AR to take a picture of Ables Western Bar-B-Cue. I would have liked to stop and eat, but I was running early and they weren’t open yet. So I headed in to Texas (finally!) and got a picture of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, TX. After a quick lunch I stopped and snapped a quick pic of Haden House in Ladonia, TX. It’s a nice example of Victorian architecture nestled in a small Texas town. After that was done I headed for Greenville, TX for my last photo stop, the Landon Winery. I tried a little of their chocolate port and had to pick up a bottle to bring home. It’s really, really good. The rest of the ride in was uneventful but hot. I pulled in to the garage some time around 3:00 PM and started unpacking and rehydrating.
This ride was just short of 2100 miles through 5 states. Here’s a link to the Spot Adventures page for it if you’re interested in the route I took.
