Hard to believe that it has almost been a week since we left the St.Louis area. We took a straight shot down highway 55 out of Missouri, into Arkansas and then Louisiana. Maybe you are wondering about the last state, and I also questioned John about that. Well, he wanted to go on a different road and claimed that it would only take us a few miles out of our way. It was interesting being back in Louisiana, and this was the first time I think that we did not use our campground catalogs in finding a place to park our rig. Large signs along the highway directed us to the Riverbend rv park.
Sunday afternoon, about two dozen of them. Later that day the sun finally came out and we saw a double rainbow. Monday was a dry sunny day and we hiked in Brazos Bend State Park, more on that in the next posting. In some places of the park a high mature forest canopy of live oaks and hardwoods reach for the sky. Pictured below is one of the trails which we followed in the park.
