On June 1, Mary and I went on a road trip down South. Headed to New Orleans, LA, we decided not to take the highway, but drive down the Natchez Trace Parkway instead. That turned out to be a great idea for several reasons. First, aside from a few bikers and cyclists, there was hardly any car traffic. Second, the scenery is astonishing for the entire 444 miles from Nashville to Natchez, Mississippi. And, finally, I got to travel some breathtaking bridges.
