We took a long hike before heading out. Decided to act like a kid again 🙂
The leaves are changing and are beautiful.
After stopping for more supplies, we were on our way. Beautiful scenery in the south.
We had already planned on going to the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum. The GPS decided to take us the shortest route to Barber. We did not realize the GPS would take us down such a narrow road. We were a little concerned but the signs said Semi trucks were allowed, so we took our chances. We are really glad we did.
We arrived at the Barber Museum at about 1pm. This museum has a collection of over 750 vintage and modern motorcycles and as well as a substantial collection of Lotus and other race cars. See the story behind Barber here. http://barbermuseum.org/our-story.php

This was our behind the scenes tour. We were on our way out and one of the guys in management was walking by. We asked if it was possible to see the bottom level. He actually said yes and said we had 5 minutes of his time. He took us below and gave us the full tour. We saw both motorcycles and cars being renovated back to their original condition. It was absolutely amazing.
After Barber, we headed to Petit Jean State Park. This unfortunately would be a LONG drive. We would not get in until 2am.
