That afternoon in Clinton I got to thinking I should have stayed on the interstate at Little Rock for easy driving to put down some miles. Now we were looking at mountain driving through the Ozarks. I’ve done that before on a previous trip. It would be a forty mile backtrack to the interstate. Nope. I’ll just deal with what lies ahead. On the plus side that afternoon and night in Clinton was the first rain-free period in I don’t know how long. Things were looking up.
We got going and soon I realized this route was much nicer than the one Sinbad and I did years back. It was easy driving and the scenery spectacular. The Ozarks never disappoint except...for two hours there was only one “scenic viewpoint” to pull off into and it was closed with construction!! So all I have is a through the windshield photo of a so-so scene.
