Highway 61 should played a big part in our pilgrimage. On our way from Newbern to Greensboro, we passed through the possibility of a town named "Whitsitt". I say possibility because there was no town in evidence and the name itself suggests a spin off "What's it?".
Driving the 8ish miles to Lion's Park in Greensboro was easy sailing. The GPS coordinates for your visiting pleasure:

Left out of our photos are the skate-friendly Toilet Rooms, the Skatepark, and other projects currently underway- which you can watch on Lion's Park Project blog. Coincidentally, the Rural Studio students were visiting the Tuscaloosa Arboretum recently.
