Highway 61 Visited

Ken on Highway 61Doug taking Alex's picture

We were pretty excited to find that our motel in Memphis was a block away from Highway 61, which we were going to take through the Mississippi Delta. It runs through Memphis on surface streets.

Highway 61 South

Highway 61 was the road we took to the National Civil Rights Museum (maybe a quarter-mile south of our motel), then, eventually, out of town. (We had some other stops to make first, at the old Stax Records site, then back to Sun Records for lunch and a sweatshirt.)
