As I was walking, I noticed how beautiful the sky was on this cloudy day.
I have driven through Natchez, Mississippi many times while heading to North Louisiana. Mostly, stopping at the McDonalds for a quick break. I always loved the tree lined view on John R. Junkin drive, and wanted to see more of the city.
Natchez, is located on the East side of the Mississippi River. Vidalia, Louisiana is directly across the river on the west side.
Selecting pictures to add in the blog post was difficult, because Natchez is a beautiful city with a lot of history.
I could have spent the entire day, looking over the Mississippi River. If you never have seen the Mississippi River in the Southern States, it is an amazing site.
This is a newer building overlooking the Mississippi. I share it because the famous restaurant, Cock of the Walk, was located.
Even their Court House is a vision.
In other blog posts, I will cover some of the places I visited while staying in Natchez, MS.
Rock City is located in Minneapolis, Kansas. The huge rocks are sandstone concretions. It a nice area, but bring your insect spray and use it. It located in a field ripe with big rocks and tiny bugs.
Afton Villa Gardens, St. Francisville, is in my top three list of beautiful gardens in Louisiana. The gardens are built on the ruins of the plantation which was destroyed by fire in 1963.
