I have been very pleased that so many drivers actually charge lanes to pass bicycle. I will write more about this later.

I was thankful to find a shelter where I could setup my tent when I arrived in the rain. I didn’t have to deal with my wet raingear and clothing.
I read about this mini-scraper and thought it might help clean the cooking pot. It is very light and has been a great help. Cleaning oatmeal has been simple. I think it works better than a dish cloth.
Day three I rode from the campground at the Meriwether Lewis site to the historical site of the Culbert Ferry across the Tennessee River.
A lady stopped there with a small son asked if I would like my picture taken. She said she didn’t think my arms were long enough.
The next day it rained almost all day. I took a quick picture at the Mississippi Line and kept riding toward Tupelo.
Last week dogwoods were in bloom along the Trace. It has been beautiful ride.
At Baker Bluff Overlook I followed steep narrow trail to Jackson falls. The sign didn’t say it was a goat trail. When I arrived I found there was easy access from the road. The few leaves on the trees blocked the view. I did hear the falls and saw some beautiful wild flowers along the way.
A beautiful day even with unseasonably cold weather.
I am finally on the way. Some of you may notice the lack of gear in this photo. I parked in long term parking and rode up to the entrance and back before I loaded my bike.
I should have run a Strava segment to see the elevation gain.
My goal today is is the bike only Campground at route 50.
This is an overview of the Natchez Trace Parkway. I will be riding 444 miles to Natchez and ride back to the northern terminus.
I will be riding a Specialized AWOL with Schwalbe Marathon plus 700x37c tires.
