I’ve mentioned it before, but our campground is located just off of the Natchez Trace Parkway and we’ve been able to travel it quite a lot in the last week (at least about 50 miles out and back of the 444 total). It’s just like driving through a city park, but it only goes in two directions…north and south. Driving on the beautiful 2 lane road of wide grass areas, deciduous trees just coming into leaf and bloom, and the local wild life, especially the Tennessee turkeys trolling the grass for food makes for another great journey. All along the “Trace” they have markers and monuments to turn off to for information about those that traveled before us. One of these is the monument and grave site of Meriwether Lewis.
