Sunday June 13, Mountain Home AR to Dyersburg TN
Thinking that it might be a little cooler, no matter how small, I decided to go North a bit and check out some local roads in Missouri. I left Mountain Home on AR 101 to pick up MO 142. It was a nice enough ride, but nothing special to write home about. Not many twists in these parts, but lots of vertical ups and downs as the road, not cut and filled, goes over the ridge tops. Lots of very green trees, but not much relief from the high temperature.
Even as far North from the mouth if the Mississippi River as we are, as the Eastern edge of Missouri is approached, big-argi is the name of the game. Lots of flat land and lots of straight roads. When MO 142 starts too far North, I take US 67 back down into Arkansas to get to a bridge over the river. At Kennett, home of Sheryl Crow, I get US 412 for a ride over the river. Still very hot in these parts.
Not much to write home about today.
