In keeping with our desire to visit State Capitols when we have the opportunity, on our drive from New Orleans to Lafayette, LA, we stopped off in Baton Rouge to see the Louisiana State Capitol (pics). This is a very interesting and very beautiful Capitol building.
We arrived in Memphis (pics), “River City”, to be met with a very brisk, very cold wind. We entered Memphis from the west so we crossed over the Interstate 40 bridge with a great view of the city skyline. We stopped into the Tennessee welcome center which is just at the bottom of the first exit after crossing the Mississippi River.
