[Visual Stimuli.] The Natchez Trace

The Natchez Trace was an old Indian Trail that was later used by settlers. Now it is a National Park Service Road. It runs from the middle of Tennessee, through the North West corner of Alabama, then down the center of Mississippi. Most of the trace is rural, along the road are farms and woodlands. In Mississippi, there are several places where the original trace crosses the road, the first picture is from there. Toward the southern end of the Natchez Trace there is a place called Cypress Swamp, which is a swamp that has a path around it and contains mostly Tupelo trees. The second and third pictures are of it.
