The ride to Fort Pillow is somewhat scenic but...You have to ride by the West Tennessee State Penitentiary to get there


You might get caught behind a tractor


It's nice otherwise.
I think they removed the infamous "hitchhikers may be escaping inmates" signs. (I didn't see 'm this time)
Note the streetlights. Not something you see everyday out in the sticks.






Inside the park. Camping there is only $8.00 because you may wake up next to an amorous escapee


From this overlook...


...You can see the Mississippi river, and Osceola Arkansas on the other side




Here's what the signs at the bottom say:








I also visited the museum


More on that later...
