Today we had to navigate a detour set up by the Natchez Trace Parkway and instead of it being a letdown, it ended up being a treat.
The day was warm as there were fields of white riding down the road. At one point, we saw the road just littered with thousands of cotton balls which is something so unique to this area. Many of us found the experience to be a treat and the detour a blessing. In no way was the Natchez Trace a let down, even on a detour.
