Tennessee is a beautiful state. Everything is such a lush green and hanging vines
abound in the wild.
Camped at Cherokee Landing 1000 Trails. About 70 miles east of Memphis.
The Tennessee River
Shiloh Battlefield - about the middle of the state. You take a self-guided tour
in your car and visit many sites that were the civil war battle of Shiloh. It take
several hours to go around and is very interesting. Plus they have a great museum
East towards Nashville...
The Natchez Trace Parkway is a small highway that starts about 50 miles east of Nashville
and runs for about 400 miles S.W. through some of the prettiest area in Tennesee,
a corner of Alabama, Mississippi, and finally ends near the gulf in Louisana. It
generally follows an old route used in the 1800's as a route north from the gulf
and was heavily used during the civil war. The Natchez Trace 1000 Trails campground
is about 100 miles from Nashville and is right on the "Trace" itself...
Natchez Trace 1000 Trails campground. About 100 miles S.W. of Nashville. One of
the nicest 1000 Trails we went to back east.
We were issued honorary "pig snouts" because we had just volunteered to strip pork
off of two sides of BBQ Pork. Known back there as "pulling pig"....

Heading down the Natchez Trace Parkway...
These are typical pictures along the "Trace". Beautiful rest stops are all along
the 400 miles of the "Trace"....
After this, into Louisana and the crazy city of New Orleans
