These trees were all along our route today. They are a beautiful...

Little flowers everywhere once you get below 1000 feet.

Our hilly homesite for tonight.

Today we drove another 200 miles to the Hurricaine Mills turnoff for Loretta Lynn's Dude Ranch. We're not planning to visit, because we hear it's overpriced for what you get. We did think about using their RV park, but the reviews say the sites are narrow and it's hard to fit slide outs in there. So, we opted for the KOA. It's hard to wrap the slide around the tree's here. The sites are small, and it's an old KOA, but it will work for overnight. It's on a hill.

The one thing we did notice driving over today was that we went from 1989 feet above sea level down to about 450 feet above sea level. We saw some beautiful trees with pink blossoms. At first I thought it was the pink dogwood blooms, but now driving by them slowly they don't appear to be dogwood. The contrast of the massive rock along the highway, and the light green starting to appear with the pink trees everywhere was beautiful.

We see after nearly 2 years of being in Nashville, they haven't finished the I-40 widening project. We got into it a little again, but used the 440 bypass. It worked well to get you around the old part of downtown. Downtown Nashville looked really pretty with all the spring time blooming, and the green grass. Looked like velvet and lace in places. It's such a pretty old city.
