DAY #206

Last day in Tennessee and what a beautiful day it was. The sky’s had cleared and it was blue sky and sunshine. The temperature was around 70 degrees, by far the nicest day in my stay at Reelfoot Lake State Park.

After a lot of back and forth, I’ve decided that when leaving here tomorrow, I’ll be heading back to Osakis, the journey has entered it’s final leg. I had toyed with the idea of staying in Missouri for a few days, but in the end, I decided it was time to come home.

The plan is to leave the campground tomorrow morning and after a long, long day (much of it freeway), I’ll stay over at a motel in Iowa City, IA, and then continue on to Osakis the next day (after another long drive).

I decided to spend this last day just meandering around and seeing some of the sights the area has to offer.

As I was wandering around, I came upon the wildlife refuge and spent some time here.

He gave me the lowdown on what was happening in the refuge.
Actually got out of the truck and did some walking.
Saw a few cardinals but try and get a photo of those little guys, I think they like teasing me.
The back waters of Reelfoot Lake.

After leaving the refuge, did some more meandering around and came across some old Florida buddy’s.

Went down the line and look where I ended up.

And just like that, I was back where I started.

Heading back to the campground, I stopped at the boat ramp and took some better photos of the lake than the one’s from last Sunday.

Made it back to the campground, what a beautiful day it turned out to be.
