We have wanted to drive the Natchez Trace for at least a decade and today began driving the Trace from Natchez to Nashville. There are many, many stops on the Trace but 20 that shouldn't be missed. The first was Emerald Mounds. The only Indian mounds larger than these are Cahokia Mounds in IL. There are two smaller mounds on top of the one huge mound. Galen and I are standing in front of one of the smaller mounds.
