TX -- AR

I've got a brief bit of downtime in the middle of what I'm choosing to call "vacation" - a 3 week tour from TX to the east coast and back, a blitz of trying to see all the interesting things we can on the way to meeting up with friends and family in DC.

Here are a few photos from the start of the trip, from the Texas border to Little Rock.

Right at the border, in fact:


Nice Texarkana stonework:


Where is John?


A business catering to folks from both states:


We stopped in Hope, AR to see Clinton's boyhood home, which was an interesting little house and quick tour.  I neglected to snap any pictures of that, but did get a shot of this railroad intersection that caught my eye - not something we see every day (feels like there should be a traffic light):


Nice foliage outside the Clinton library in Little Rock:


Dinosaurs on display - motion activated in fact (pretty funny):


The cabinet room as it would have looked while Clinton was in office (except the missing wall on the right side):


Displays among the library stacks:


An elegant dining table on the upper level:


Beautiful Chihuly glasswork:


A replica of the Oval Office:


We did a nice run around Little Rock, checking out sculptures along the river, like this one:


The actual "little rock" that used to be a landmark for people traveling upriver:


More fun artwork:


The Korean Gate:


Complete with an adorable guard lion:


Interesting bridge to run across:


The Razorback submarine:


And the bridge we took to come back across:


On the road again!
