I still like spelling this state’s name out loud. It has a musical rhythm.
It was a quick detour around Memphis to get to my 3rd new state of the trip. I only had a chance to get one cache, but that’s all it takes, and this turned out to be a remarkable experience. The cache was at the entrance of a cemetery full of Civil War heroes and their contemporaries.
The caretaker greeted me as I found the cache. He loved the idea that geocachers were coming to find it and learn more about the history there. He showed me all around the place and regaled me with detail after detail of several of the current residents.
