As part of our route from River Ridge to Vicksburg, we drove on the Natchez Trace Parkway from Natchez to Port Gibson. The parkway is a scenic modern highway that more or less follows the path of an ancient footpath that was used in the first two decades of the Nineteenth Century as a major highway for foot and horseback travelers between Natchez and Nashville. We visited Locust Grove, a family home that served as a “stand” or inn for travelers. It’s one of only two remaining stands. We visited Grinder’s Inn near Nashville on our ramble four years ago.

We made it to the Top of the World, or at least the northernmost land mass in Europe, Magerøya Island. On our coach tour we learned much about the natural history and the cultures of this starkly beautiful place.
