1/3/10, Slovak, AR - An hour into our journey this morning, we crossed the new bridge across the White River. It’s a good thing that horses generally don’t have a fear of heights, because it’s quite a distance down to the river.
Most of the trek down US Route 70 this morning was great, but an hour before we turned off, there must have been an accident up on I-40. Quite suddenly, the road was filled with trucks and cars making their way west. Fortunately, that section of Route 70 had wide shoulders.
We’re currently in the small town of Slovak, as guests of Sue, George, Maria and Steven. It was getting late in the afternoon, when they drove up and offered us a place. Tonight, they’re probably the only critters in Arkansas that don’t mind the snow flurries that are occasionally falling.
Tomorrow, we pass through the city of Stuggart, before turning southwest on US Route 79 for Pine Bluff.
