Getting There

After visiting Driskill Mountain, I left there around 8:30 AM or so and drove directly to Magazine Mountain.  I was using Google Navigator on my phone, and it served me well.  However, the direct route between the two high points does not include any interstate travel.  So it was country roads and state roads the whole way.  As you can imagine, it was slow going but a nice casual drive the whole way.  I passed through numerous small towns and at one point passed through Delight, Arkansas – home of Glen Campbell.  He died recently (about a year ago), and that’s where they buried him.  There’s a big sign by the road on the route, so I that this was interesting.  You never know what you’re going to run across when driving around these places!  That’s one thing that is good about visiting these off-the-beaten track places.  There’s a lot of America to be seen between “here” and “there”.
