Mud River Island

This weekend we visited a site in Memphis called Mud River Island Park. It has a miniature-type version of the Lower Mississippi River, showing all of the states it winds through, and the history of the many cities on it. We had a fun time learning and visiting this free park. Since we move often, we try to visit as many local places as we can each place we live. The USA has so much to offer, and when you live somewhere, you forget about all the places you can visit. So, we try to view the places we live through tourists' eyes, trying to take advantage of all we can. Here are a few pictures from the day.


Here's a small part of the river representation.



Okay, so I know you are stupefied right now as to how in the world this fits in to a river park. I have no idea, but it was funny! This giant hay man was too good to resist, so we had to snap a picture of Carl sitting on his lap.
