We enjoyed driving the Scenic 7 Byway. Nice getting off of the highwayd and looking at the mountains and valleys. There are no places to get fuel. You will pass Wilhelmina State Park with the possibility for something to eat.

Great scenery, with perfectly banked roads. Very beautiful. If you get a chance, go to the Old Post BBQ in Russellville. It has fabulously good ribs and chicken, and probably everything else they make. Mmm, Mmmmm!
