More Trace Canton, MS, Friday, 11 November 2011 6:24pm

Another day of riding the Natchez Trace. Mostly uneventful, easy riding. I'd been looking for a Post Office for a while, and finally found one in Tuscumbia, but it was closed for Veterans Day. I stopped for lunch in Tupelo, MS, and had the best fried green tomatoes I've ever had. I made one stop along the parkway for a short walk to check out a cypress swamp. Otherwise it was just riding all day.

The scenery was really pretty in the afternoon. The trees down here still have some leaves, and the parkway creates a clearing for the slanting light to shine through and hit the trees on one side of the road.
