Natchez, Mississippi

After a good night’s sleep we are both rested and ready to go. We crossed the Mississippi River at Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and then left Interstate 10, going north on Highway 61.

Crossing the Mississippi River at Baton Rouge, Louisiana

This is the Great River Road, a National Scenic Byway along the Mississippi River, running 2,000 miles up to the river’s source in Minnesota. But that is a trip for another time. After about 60 miles or so we cross the border into Mississippi.

We crossed the Mississippi River again and we’re back in Louisiana. We are staying at River View RV Park in Vidalia, Louisiana, for a few days while we visit Natchez, Mississippi, on the other side of the river so we will be going back and forth across this bridge while we are here.

The RV park we are in tonight is along the river not far from the bridge. There is a walkway along the river’s edge. We walked it to the bridge and back. It was a beautiful day, 80 degrees and mostly sunny. We spent the rest of the day watching barges traverse up and down the river.

      I would love to take the Great River Road all the way back to Minnesota! We have done parts of it before, but a full beginning-to-end trip would be cool. Unfortunately, won’t be this year. We’re headed to New Hampshire now.

      • I don’t know if I would drive on the Great River Road the whole way in an RV. Several years ago we we drove along it for a while in Missouri pulling our camper and it was pretty rough and slow going. We have camped beside the river in a couple of places. Nothing like watching the barges go by from your campsite. I highly recommend making the trek to Itasca State Park to walk across the headwaters of the Mississippi!
