The road to Athens, Louisiana.
Found it: Athens, Louisiana
There's the Mississippi River that I just crossed coming into Vicksburg, Mississippi.
I get distracted so easily. I saw Yazoo City on the map and thought, "Now there's someplace I just feel I need to go to say I've been there." It doesn't get me any closer to an Athens, but doesn't matter...I'm not in a hurry.
I do know that it is in the general area between Tupelo and Columbus.
From the best I can make out, Athens should be somewhere down this road.This is the only sign using the name Athens I could find...and it was several miles away from where my GPS said Athens was located.
But as we all know...
