Another gourmet breakfast this morning. We could really get used to this... Another beautiful day on the Trace. We had 175 miles to travel today and all our stops are planned, including Colbert Ferry (Alabama) where Andrew Jackson's army crossed the river for a $75,000 fee. The Napier Mine, Meriwether Lewis' grave and various overlooks viewing beautiful rolling valleys covered with blooming dogwoods and many other types of trees and vegetation.
We arrived at the appropriately named Ridgetop B&B which was landscaped with flowers that provided all the colors of the rainbow down the long driveway to the log cabin. Our host had the fireplace loaded and ready to go. No TV in this one so I missed my American Idol performances. James had plans for a performance of his own. We won't go there... With temperatures in the low 40's the fireplace was a nice touch.
