I'm thinking that it's Louisiana... it is what it is, and that this trail should capture that, and if you're in the Mississippi Valley Alluvial plain and on into the Delta, then you're in the flat, fertile, rural heart of Louisiana. The home of the delta blues and all that famous food. It might be long and flat, but it has it's own scenic character and beauty.

Sometimes there's something very "Huck Finn Zen" about a long, straight, lonely, stretch of gravel or dirt that meanders along the Mighty Mississippi. While it may not be as exciting as clipping apexes along the old moonshine routes found in the north. If that's what touring the eastern portion of the state has to offer then that's what the trail should be.

75. Southern Coastal Plain


My first thought is I just started teaching 8th grade Louisiana history yesterday and It's already getting to me.
