Native Americans first cut the Natchez Trace as an overland route as a shortcut from the Cumberland River at what is today Nashville to the Mississippi River at Natchez. Immigrant Europeans later used the route, which became deeply rutted from constant use. Today a motor parkway travels the same route. Yesterday we paid a visit.
The most beautiful bridge carries the Natchez Trace Parkway over a valley near its northern terminus.
I climbed up for a different angle from the northern side
and then got a view from the other side
Then we drove down to get a view of of the bridge from below
Then walked up to get a closer look from below
