2011 Reese’s Birthday Run – Day 10

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.
