The third day of the trip starts in Jackson, Tenn., heading north on the US 45 bypass.

Not far north of the split of US 45's business and bypass routes is the split of E and W routes.

US 45E crosses US 79 and Alt. US 70 (a/k/a US 70A).

Hidden by the bush is a sign for TN 77, the secret state route for US 70A.

US 22 is a full freeway in west Tennessee.

TN 356 is signed as a primary route here but all other signage is for a secondary route.

A new county.

TN 461 is the southern section of The Trace, which runs through Land Between the Lakes.

This old iron furnace is located beside TN 49.

By entering Houston County, I clinched Tennessee. It's the seventh state in which I have visited all the counties. KY, OH, PA, WV, VA and DE are the others.

TN 149 is an improved route north from Erin to Cumberland City.

TN 46 heads north off TN 149 to Cumberland City and the ferry across the Cumberland River.

TN 46 is signed to the ferry landing.

Looking across the Cumberland River to the ferry landing on the other side, with the ferry heading south in the middle of the river.

Photo software is a wonderful thing. I shot this photo looking into my outside rear-view mirror.

And after a "flip horizontally" command, that same picture come sout looking like this!

Looking upstream on the Cumberland River. The headwaters are in Letcher County, Ky.

Looking downstream.

A shot of my GPS showing me on the ferry.

Approaching the ferry landing on the north bank.

Looking back at Cumberland City from the northern bank.

Driving away from the river.

The fence marks the southern boundary of Fort Campbell.

A sign. Part of US 79 west of Clarksville is being widened to four lanes.

Back at The Trace.

It's 24 miles to where US 68 and KY 80 cross The Trace.

The US Forest Service has taken over management from LBL from TVA.

US 68 / KY 80 is being widened to four lanes through LBL. There will be a diamond interchange at the connection where previously there was one two-lane ramp.

An old Trace trailblazer sign.

Yet another Trace marker.
