THE OLD NATCHEZ TRACE
Back in the early 1800's the Natchez Trace was the most direct route northward from the port of Natchez on the Mississippi to Nashville. In between were 500 miles of wilderness. This path runs along the ridge of the Tennessee Valley Divide and is a remnant of the original Natchez Trace.
It was cool to imagine, as I stood there looking down this historic trail that boatmen, mail riders, traders, soldiers, Indians and outlaws passed here. On horseback and on foot (later with wagons) they followed the serpentine trail into the deep woods of Indian country. Very cool indeed.
Have a nice Monday everyone!
