Adventures with Cordy, September 12, 1976

[Below is day 6 in a series of road trip diary installments. To get the full context, start with Adventures with Cordy: A Road Trip Diary and follow the trail from there. --Amy]

September 12, 1976 (Sunday)

As we packed the car this morning the other three travelers could see the wisdom of Lynn's decision to travel lightly. Drove through the beautiful Ozarks to a point called Petit Jean Mountain, which is a resort area. It also contained a beautiful museum of old cars which had been beautifully preserved. This museum was contributed by Governor Winthrop Rockefeller. Spent the night in Poplar Bluff, Missouri. In addition to the Museum, we enjoyed lunch at Mather Lodge, which was named for Mather who was known as the originator and "Father of State and Federal Parks."
