A Walk Down the Natchez Trace

In October 2014 I spent about four hours one afternoon driving and walking down the Natchez Trace around Madison, MS. Here are a few of the things I found along my journey.

Split Rail Fence, Some with Red Tipped Lichen

I wish I had a Macro Lens, but I am working on one in the future.

Bridge to the Swamp

Down the trail around the swamp, watching closely for moving sticks (snakes) and alligators. They stayed home today!

  1. All of the photos are precious and beautiful, Andy! I love the split rail fence, since I am always pointing out details about moss and lichen to my grandchildren. The details in life are so awesome! Nature is so wonderful and we are so blessed to still have such places to see and visit. Thanks for taking me along on your photographic adventures!

  2. Nice to see through your eyes, although I am not sure about the swamp, :). I went to Uganda in 2007. And the swamps really freaked me out, it’s like the whole of Uganda is filled with swamps, and of course. ME, I nearly fell into one. :(. As it was covered in the Papyrus plant, learnt that out there too, never ever again. :(. I see you are thoroughly enjoying your camera. X
