Another beautiful day to drive the Natchez Trace.

We stopped and walked around a Tupelo/Bald Cypress swap,

saw the Pearl River,

and enjoyed a walk through an old pine forest.

We toured the small town of Kosciusko, Mississippi wear Oprah Winfrey was born. The town was named for a Polish general Tadeusz Kościuszko, who assisted United States military efforts during the American Revolution.

After checking into the hotel in Tupelo we had time to visit of the grounds of Elvis's birthplace and museum (it was closed when we arrived).

The house Elvis was born in.

A statue of Elis at age 13, the age when he left Tupelo.
