Way to go EQUILL!
That was part of the trace along the Natchez trail!

Quote:
The Natchez Trace, also known as the "Old Natchez Trace", is a historical path that extends roughly 440 miles from Natchez, Mississippi to Nashville, Tennessee, linking the Cumberland, Tennessee and Mississippi rivers.

It was created and used for centuries by Native Americans, and was later used by early European and American explorers, traders and emigrants in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.

Today, the trail is commemorated by the Natchez Trace Parkway, which follows the approximate path of the Trace. Parts of the original trail are still accessible and some segments have been listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Great job one and all. It is always enjoyable to see the entries...and then the chosen winners as well. What a nice October mix.
