West Point, MS to Fulton, MS (66 miles)

Today's picture is of Smithville, MS, one of the worst hit towns in the south by a massive tornado a few weeks ago. We rode for 3 miles through what looked like a war zone. It was such an extremely full on experience I couldn't hold back tears and we had to stop 1/2 way through. I have never seen such devastation first hand. Those poor people lost absolutely everything, including about 30 members of their community.

On a lighter note, the rest of the day was beautiful cycling and we made it to a very nice campground in Fulton, MS on the Tombigbee Waterway once again. Tomorrow is a much needed day off!
