We left Belton on May 17, and made our way toward Indiana, a little quicker than we normally would, knowing that the end of the week was bring Memorial Day weekend, and full campgrounds.
We traveled through northern Arkansas and were surprised to learn that it is a major rice producer. Somehow, you don’t think of Arkansas when you think of growing rice. Field after field was green with the tiny shoots.
As we traveled on through Missouri and Tennessee, the rivers we crossed were swollen with flood waters.
More surprising was the appearance of the trees. The destruction was similar to that caused by straight line winds, but continued on for hundreds of miles. We learned that night that the trees were destroyed by a winter ice storm.
The next two days we stayed in a small campground in Corydon, IN, to give us time to visit with family and friends in the area.
On Sunday, we made our last move for a while, to McCormick’s Creek State Park. We will be working as camp hosts for the park for the next two months. This is our third year to work here.
