Pictures of the Bayou-Touring Nature and the "Bog"!
When I travel the environment becomes part of my destination. One of the ways to move outside to smell the pristine air and foliage of the outdoors. Experiencing the natural landscape before human development it is necessary to separate yourself from the relics of these societies. In my opinion, if you only frequent popular tourist attractions you are missing out on a very important underbelly that formed the nucleus of local culture.
Enjoy some pictures of the Bayou. Crocodiles, turtles, birds, snakes, and rodent life exist in the swampy forest. As you walk along an embankment it becomes strikingly clear that you are surrounded by a theater of "real" life and activity. The early French settlers would have seen the very same thing.
