One of the most scenic parkways in America, Natchez Trace Parkway runs 444 miles through Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee. Passing stunning landscapes and pausing at hidden cultural treasures, traveling the Trace is a pleasure by foot, bike and car. Particularly beautiful in the spring and fall, we recommend visiting the Cypress Swamp around Halloween for a little dose of spooky fun. National Park Service photo.

A few months back we ventured to Natchez, MS to see what we could get into trouble with and make out way to the infamous abandoned steamboat in the area. Unfortunately, the Mississippi River was unforgiving and this was closest we could get. Not interested in getting eaten by gators, as a local put it, we moved on to bigger adventures. We will be shooting in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula this week. Due to the lack of cellular coverage there is going to be a hiatus for the next week. 9/13-9/18/16. Bigger and bolder things to come. Stay with us…
