Natchez Trace Parkway

natchez-trace-parkwayThe air sticky; the cicadian croon floating.
A white tail swish-swishing amongst the farmer’s bounty; life teeming underfoot.
Hay bales stoic in quiet observation.
Beams of light; incandesced, pouring through the canopy.

The Natchez Trace Parkway is one of my favorite day trips right outside of Nashville. It is a 444-mile expanse of roadway that stretches from Tennessee, all the way down to Mississippi through Alabama. Lots of farm land, lots of curves, and lots of fresh air. Plan accordingly and gas up before embarking. There is a welcomed shortage of advertisements and amenities along this stretch.
