I am in Tennessee:)
It is a short drive from my house to the Trace. Our first stop was at a bridge with the idea of walking across. Unfortunately, the height got to me and I wimped out. Sorry I didn't get a good picture so you could see how HIGH it is.
EDITED 11/7/10 This is a picture of the bridge:) You can't tell but the railing doesn't come too far past my knees - or it felt that way!! I definitely got the "fear factor" and the feeling I didn't need to be up that high!!! Thanks to Randy Fought for sharing the picture. His website is: Natchez Trace Travel and you might even see one of my pictures there!
The colors were just beautiful!! I am continuing to enjoy this time of year and am still amazed at the beauty. Most of the time I don't know which direction to look first. We stopped at one area and went for a short hike that led up to the original trail and walked along it for a bit before we headed back to Franklin.
