Saturday August 9, 2014 Travel Day The day started off sunny and hot, but soon turned overcast as we headed south on US 65. Crossing Into Arkansas we continued south on US 65 and I-40 East into Little Rock. We did not stop but continued straight through the city on I-30 and then I-530 south to Pine Bluff.
