A little trip

Yesterday I took Beth to Natchez, Ms. We were going to get her handicapped access pass for the National Park service. Since the Natchez National historic park is the closest National park service office and we hadn’t been there the trip was planned. We needed the pass for our upcoming trip. It provides reduced price camping in National forests and free access to National parks.

While we were there we purchased a National Park service Passport and obtained our first two cancellation stamps. Read more about the Passport program here. All proceeds benefit the park service. You can obtain the stamps at all national parks and monuments and most of the historic sites.

Melrose was undergoing a face lift so we didn’t get many photos of the house itself, however the grounds are beautiful. Facing the Mississippi river from high atop a bluff. The cypress and oak trees are gorgeous.

I had to maneuver around to not include the construction.

The we left and went to the national cemetery where we could look upon the Mississippi river bridge from the overlook.

I took 4 shots and stitched them with PTGUi
