I am in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Bill Clinton's boyhood home and a National Park surrounding its namesake, hot springs. Yesterday was 109 degrees. Today is going down to 100, a reprieve. Nighttime temp around 85, sleep intermittent & fitful.
I have written about the end of the Natchez Trace and crossing the Mississippi River (I used a bridge, I didn't swim) and traveling along a levee in rich farmland. I will add that text soon.
