Journey With Me Through A Louisiana Backroad...

Our lake house is only 45 minutes away.  That is the perfect distance to travel every week we possilby can.  Although is is fairly close, it is a wonderful place for a relaxing getaway.  As I travel through the backroads  part of the way to get there, I always say that I am going to get my camera out and snap a few photographs of the beautiful Louisiana countryside.  Today was that day...I hope you enjoy the journey!

Robby usually heads north from work and I head out after my work-out at the gym, therefore, the two doxies are my traveling companions.  The first part of the trip finds them excited and anxious; today even more so since I stopped to take pictures!
Annie (left) and Sissy were quite agitated as I kept stopping to snap pictures!

All sorts of crops line the roads; corn, soybeans and cotton...


Along with various worn buildings and barns...




And some plantations houses too...

This quaint little church is just plopped down amidst the crops in the middle of nowhere

I don't know how they know when we've hit the interstate, but that is when they always settle down for a little nap!

Once we hit our exit and get to the railroad track, we are very close to Cane River Lake...


Driving around the curves toward our house many plantations can be found lining the road


As well as these gorgeous crepe myrtle trees...

As we cross over Cane River Lake, I know that we are just around the corner from our destination!

Our "home away from home"


I just love sitting on my back porch in the mornings before it gets too hot; sipping my coffee and looking out on the lake...

I hope you enjoyed a journey through one rural Louisiana backroad...

  1. Wonderful post. I'm so glad I get to call Louisiana home. We might not be the biggest fanciest State but we do have beautiful scenery.
