Natchez Trace Parkway

What a beautiful stretch of road.  The Natchez Trace Parkway is a National Park – like the Blue Ridge Parkway.  No civilization, just beautiful, curving 2-lane road and green, green grass and trees alongside.  The road stretches 444 miles from the Gulf Coast of Mississippi, thru Alabama and on to Nashville, Tennessee.  It follows a route that has been used by soldiers in the Civil War, and by many generations of Native Americans before them. 

There are plenty of pullout spots to stop for lunch.

Or to take a walk.

Jackson Falls was so pretty.

Would love to know if you are at Thousand Trails Natchez Trace or have been there.

Beautiful pictures, have always wanted to make that trip, but I pull a 37 ft 5er and was afraid to try it. I am a TT/N member too, and heard the underpass into Natchez Trace was too low for my rig>
