    Nathalie at the Crossroads marker

    Favorite thing: The Crossroads marker is actually located at the intersection of Desoto Avenue (US Route 49) and State Street, aka State Route 161 aka Business US Route 61 aka "The Strip." This is incredibly confusing when you first come into town, but eventually you'll come across this location. The chain hotels are all located on State Street, along with Wal-Mart and the fast-food restaurants.

    Fondest memory: Although we visited Clarksdale in the off-season and didn't get to experience any of its world-famous blues celebrations, we plan to return again to see such exciting events as the Sunflower River Blues Festival, Crossroad Bikes & Blues, Juke Joint Festival, King Biscuit Blues Festival, Blues Cruise '05, to name a few.

    "Where the streets have cool names..."

    Blues Alley & Delta Avenue

    Favorite thing: I'm paraphrasing U2 here, because the streets in Clarksdale have wonderfully evocative names like Blues Alley and John Lee Hooker Lane.

    Nathalie wants to be sure everyone notices that all the fire hydrants in Clarksdale are not the usual red, but an odd shade of faded pink. This picture was taken across from Ground Zero Blues Club
