Crossing the Atchafalaya Basin

With a longing to return, we left Cajun Country headed north and east, crossing the Atchafalaya Basin, the largest swamp in the country, and its floodways. Roads are few and follow the levees.

We landed at a campground on the mighty Mississippi in Vidalia, LA.. Powerful tugs propel long flotillas of barges up and down the river, their low-frequency ‘rumble-hum’ throbbing a long passage past this pleasant green shoreline campground opposite the bluffs of Natchez, MS.

Tomorrow we cross the bridge to Natchez to see what’s on the other side of Ol’ Muddy.
