 POINTS OF INTEREST (subject to change as new ones develop!!!!)

  •  False River:  One of the first colonies discovered by the french explorer Iberville and the main channel of the Mississippi River at that time. 
  • After #6. as you travel about 7.7 miles, you will be in the mesmerizing city of Morganza.  Look right and you will see 3 abandoned storefronts in a row.  One of which was the site of the restaurant in Easy Rider (remember, they ate there and flirted with the local girls leading Jack Nicholson to be killed that night in Louisiana, but that's certainly no statement on the local environs, then or now!!)
