Clinton, MS to Hot Springs, AR via Vicksburg National Military Park, MS and Magnolia Plantation, LA – 486 miles

Stayed up too late last night and just couldn’t get rolling this morning. It’s another beautiful day for a motorcycle ride.

My first stop is just a short hop down the interstate to Vicksburg National Military Park. The siege and eventual surrender of Vicksburg to the Union army gave the North control of the Mississippi River. There are over 1,340 monuments and a 16 mile auto tour route in the park.

After getting my National Park Tour stamp at Vicksburg I headed out across the Louisiana delta, where cotton is still an important crop.

My next stop was at Magnolia Plantation, part of the Cane River National Heritage Area. There didn’t seem to be anyone there, so I wandered around and eventually found the stamp, took a few pictures and left.

From there is was a long slog through northern Louisiana and southern Arkansas to get to Hot Springs, where I will get a stamp tomorrow.

National Parks Tour progress so far – 48 sites, 20 states.
