Last week we took a short vacation to Natchez Trace State Park, only about 1 1/2 hours from here. We stayed in one of the cabins. We were expecting highs in the lower 40s with a chance of snow, so we packed our sweat pants and prepared for cozy time in front of the fire.
Instead, we got highs in the upper 50s-lower 60s. Hmmm... We enjoyed the nice view from the cabin's balcony:
This is the view from the couch:
and the view from the dining table:
We walked a few trails while we were there, and we did this 1-mile trail on the afternoon we arrived:
Here's the view from the parking lot of the building where you check in:
We saw deer, an owl, crows, buzzards, hawks, squirrels, cardinals, a woodpecker and sparrows, but we didn't see anything unexpected or exotic. You can enjoy a virtual tour online at the park's website.
Someone has posted a 3 1/2 minute video of parts of the park:
We had a peaceful trip.
