We are finally on our trip to the Pacific Northwest. We left Thursday, June 16th, We spent the night at the KOA just north of Fort Smith at Alma, AR. Barb was following in the Honda CRV. She took this picture as I entered the Hopper Tunnel on I-540 south of Fayetteville, AR. She also took the picture below in the tunnel.
Even the pictures and video on TV didn’t prepare us for the damage in Joplin, MO. We briefly drove through town on our way to Kansas City.
This was once a McDonald’s restaurant.
This is what is left of Joplin High School!
Even the bark was stripped off the trees. It was eerie to see stumps of trees stacked in the streets awaiting removal.
