Nostalgia for sure. This is part of the original Natchez Trace that dates to 1733 when the indians had a trail from Natchez to northeast. By 1785 farmers began floating their crops and products down rivers to Natchez where their flat boats were sold and they returned home via a dangerous but most direct route via the trail from Natchez to Nashville. By 1810 after many years of travel "The Trace" became and important widlerness road but it was hazardous with heat, mosquitoes, indians, bandits, swamps, disease and death. Shortly after 1812 the steamer "New Orleans" came to Natchez and its speed and safety decreased the bustle of the trace to a peaceful forest lane. Now the modern Natchez Trace parallels the Old Trace and is one of the most beautiful Parkways in America. This capture is of a nostalgic portion of the old original trace that has been beaten down by the travelers and is appropriately called "The Sunken Trace" It is located at about mile marker 40 from the origin at Natchez. Enjoy this bit of Southern American History and Nostalgia. Emile
