Natchez, Mississippi

On our road trip through the south in January we stopped for lunch on Sunday in Natchez, Mississippi.  We arrived there by way of the Natchez Trace that we picked up south of Vicksburg near Port Gibson.

The Natchez Trace is maintained by the National Park Service and is a 444 mile road from Nashville, TN to Natchez, MS.

It commemorates a trail first used by Native Americans and then by European settlers of this area.

The road is only two lanes and on Sunday it was little traveled.  There was still ice in spots and thankfully when the well pointed buck ran across in from of us it was not on an icy patch of road.  We missed him thankfully, but it was a near miss.

This was a remarkable looking church in Natchez.

We ate here at the Biscuits and Blues Restaurant and then headed on our way south to Baton Rouge, LA.
