Taking A Sunday Drive #20
This Welcome Center in Greenville is a replica of the Victorian Era steamboats that once plied the Great Mississippi River.
Thousands and thousands of acres of that fertile Mississippi bottom land.
Winterville Mounds National Historic Landmark is a short distance north of Greenville.
The largest of more than twenty original mounds is Temple Mound in the background.
I am certain I will never tire of viewing artifacts like these. For some reason they have always interested me. This may be where my love of pottery comes from.
Polished disc shaped stones believed to have been used in trade, for games and as rolled targets in spear-throwing practice.
I would trade for some of these!
I'm including Louisiana, The Pelican State, in this Sunday Drive, because, even though I had been to New Orleans for Mardi Gras back in the mid 70's, Bud had never been to this state. nor had we crossed it off our lower 48 list together.
