Second batch from July of 2008, featuring mainly US-82 and US-78 in Arkansas and Mississippi.

Along US-82 in southwest Arkansas is a wild animal farm. Here is a half-horse half-zebra creature.

Some of the last cutouts in Mississippi. There is a US-45 somewhere, too.

Extra tall sunset, somewhere approaching Tupelo on old US-78.

A bird on a stop sign.

Following US-82 in southern Arkansas, and looking to the north at this railroad bridge.

I don’t think that’s quite what they intended to say.

More from the farm – here is a buffalo.

An actual zebra, and several other creatures.

Gotta keep up with that llama farm in Nebraska.

The trees haven’t even been cleared yet – but, someday, this will be I-69.

Yes, that tends to be the case…

Arkansas uses classic US highway shields.

“5 tracks” is rare enough – and here is one with button copy!

Several of the five tracks, and switch engine number 1156.

Somehow, in the other direction – there’s six tracks? I am not sure how the arithmetic works out.

An old reflector embedded in a US-82 bridge from the early 1930s. Unfortunately, it does not reflect particularly well anymore.

I do not know why this road has a T suffix.

Further along US-82 is this tank.

We’re in Mississippi now – specifically, at the Greenville train station.

Specialization is for insects.

US-82 has long been on the bypass around town, but I’ll take this shield any day.

Mississippi uses the classic shields even for suffixed routes. They use the wide shield for their one three-digit route: 278.

Vertical squirrel is vertical.

Mississippi is bringing the state name back to its interstate markers.

The missile tail on the arrow is a nice touch on this white guide sign.

Birds and power lines.

We’re on old US-78 heading east now.

A railroad overpass.

Sunset over interstate 22.

More interstate 22. We stop somewhere around here for today.
