Southern Trip to the East (Southeast)

We are so happy to have business to the East of us in Jonesboro, Arkansas and Memphis, Tennessee. Here are some pics form our recent early September trip to these lovely places.

The lake as we are leaving Mountain Home, Arkansas had a light fog over it.

As we pass through the small town of Ravenden, we see the Raven that watches over their city (a bit scary for my tastes, but to each his own!). I just think those eyes are kind of spooky.


Then on to the rice and soybean fields in the Delta of Arkansas. The fields had taken on some beautiful golden and green colors that just cried out for me to take a picture. Often as we pass through, we are treated to a fabulous show by the crop dusters dipping and lifting and soaring over the fields.

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful
    lot of text for only having one or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    Lovely photos of the early morning lake and the colors of the fields are reminding me of the coming fall – my favorite time of the year. Yes, the raven’s eyes are definitely spooky!

    Beautiful photos. I remember crossing the Lake on a car ferry in the fall when colors were at the height of their glory. A wonderful experience.
