Natchez Trace Parkway

Today's travels took us along the Natchez Trace Parkway (which Susan described as the Blue Ridge Parkway without the mountains). It runs 444 miles from Natchez, MS to Nashville, TN but we only did the first 87 miles so we could go to Vicksburg. It was a nice 2-lane 50 mph road with scenic spots along the way. There were a few sites we couldn't see due to narrow roads or low bridge clearances (we were driving the RV). Our favorite stop was at the Sunken Old Trace which is part of the original early 1800's road that has been preserved. Talk about a worn down path...
