Today we drove out to Barataria Preserve National Park, part of the Jean Lafitte National Park. It is a large Swamp Preserve with some hiking trails. We drove down and grabbed my hiking poles and off we went. We only went on a 2-mile roundtrip trail but it was a beautiful day and so we started over to the Battlefield where The Battle of New Orleans was fought. Unfortunately they close earlier than we expected so we will be down in that are tomorrow.
Beautiful walk through the swamp that made me feel like home.
