We were very close to the Natchez Trace Parkway, a national scenic byway. 444 miles of lovely scenery with no billboards blocking it! In the 1800s the parkway was a trading route for Ohio Valley traders. Nowadays one can enjoy a nice drive from Natchez, Mississippi to Nashville, Tennessee with no stops at 50MPH and nothing to block the scenery!

Natchez Trace Parkway
We only walked a few miles of trail
along the parkway as the trail was
right next to the road most of the time.

lots of beaver sign in the park, however, no more beavers:(
this little guy was crossing the trail at the park when we came upon him. I think he is smiling at us:)
there were several blue herons at the lake but this one, One Foot (yep, I named him) obviously had the bank in front of our motorhome in his territory.....
here he is catching his dinner on a cloudy day....
no easy task!!!
below, you can see why I
named him One Foot
