We are off of the trace now and already miss its mile markers, low traffic and especially the smooth roads we had the price large of getting spoiled by! Louisiana has a different look from Mississippi which is strikingly apparent as soon as one crosses the state line. It is my kind of place, for sure! The roads look 50 times patched over and the houses too, but there is a charm to the state. Here are a few pictures from the last few days while we were too far from electricity and/or connectivity. If it were not for this blog, I’d be very happy to turn these devices off and really get away from reality. That is the best part of all of this – the world is far, far away. Nice!
We had to get up to the trace the hard way after our gps lied to us, yet again. The length we go to for a cold drink!
The corn fields show how summer is changing.
Last stop in MS – the welcome center. Shouldn’t it be the goodbye center? Never mind, they had cold water and gave us some ICE!
Over the bridge and seven donuts more.
Campsite number, we forget.
The next morn
And more pedaling, again, this morning.
