... greens, yellows, greys and mauves. Time wore on and we searched for some accommodation. Somehow we found ourselves further along the road than we'd anticipated for today and lodging was thin on the ground. When we drove into Jackson we found the first available hotel with a vacancy. We sat down in the very swanky reception area and were told there was a room available and (lucky us) only $300+ for the night.
