The Delta region encompasses much more than the boundaries by which it is defined. The Lower Mississippi Delta is a vast and vital part of the American landscape. This broad, valley reaches from southern Illinois to the southeastern tip of Louisiana. The Deltaís 90,000 miles of rivers and streams cover some 3 million acres, dictating much of the regionís landscape and land use. Beautiful lakes and wildlife abound here. Here are a few pictures of the area.

The Natchez Trace

The Natchez Trace Parkway, an historical 450-mile route from Natchez, Mississippi to Nashville, Tennessee, is a part of the U.S. National Park System. The current two-lane road was begun in the late 1930s, following a path which, some say, began as buffalo trails later followed by the Native American tribes in the Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee area. Except for about 10 miles at the Natchez terminus and a 15-mile segment at Jackson, the Trace is now a continuous road in a scenic natural setting.



Natchez Trace Overlook

This 50 square mile reservoir is formed by an earth filled dam. I bet this water is full of some great fish.
