The beginning

We recently took a trip down the Natchez Trace Parkway. The Natchez Trace Parkway is a 444-mile drive through exceptional scenery and 10,000 years of North American history.  Used by American Indians, "Kaintucks", settlers, and future presidents, the Old Trace played an important role in American history. Today, visitors can enjoy not only a scenic drive but also hiking, biking, horseback riding, and camping. These are the first few pictures that we took when we got on the parkway in Nashville, TN.  It ends in Natchez, MS and is a beautiful and relaxing drive.

The Trace goes through some beautiful country here in Tennessee, doesn't it? I'm glad you enjoyed the drive.
