Looking at the picture gallery most are taken in the west. If you are lucky enough to be between Nashville and Natchez the best kept secret in America is the Natchez Trace Parkway which follows the path of the early Mississippi traders. Along the route there are many historical markers describing past events. A bonus is the 3 free campgrounds (dry camping only) along the 440 mile picturesque route, which is operated by the U.S. Dept. of the Interior.
