"HOPE"

Michelle Alton February 08, 2010

The "Clinton" museum in Hope overflows with Clinton family photographs. The volunteer Guide was eager to show me the displays in the Ladies' Restroom. #1236224

Interesting tour Michelle, you were busy for a week weren't you. Interesting how a little unknown town becomes a crossroad of interest after someone who lived there became famous. #8365506

Steve M. Harrington February 08, 2010

A fine image and interesting details, Michelle. I get the impression that hope is mainly a clean washroom. That was certainly the case in many of the places I traveled to. :)
