The day after our long ride on the Tanglefoot Trail, we wanted to do a short recovery ride. Turns out that there was an access point to the Natchez Trace Parkway around four miles from where we were staying in tiny Houston, Mississippi. So, on our second full day, we pedaled over to the Trace on another beautiful (shorts weather!) morning.
The Trace had light traffic even for a weekend (would likely be much lighter on a weekday) and a lower speed limit than most highways. It's flat to lightly rolling in the part of MS we rode in, perfect for a ride.
I thought the name of this rest area along the Trace was interesting so had to turn in to see what it was all about.

Emily & Barry
We're a long-married, early-retired couple who are currently traveling as nomads with no fixed home base. After years of living in North Carolina (Emily's home state), we spent 18 months living oceanfront on Ambergris Caye, Belize, a year road-tripping the US in a Honda CR-V, a year in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, and are now roaming North America in our 32' motorhome, Pearl, following warm weather whenever possible.
