The weather was warm all winter but April started getting out of hand. It …
... to its Mississippi cousin. Louisiana at this latitude is unexpectedly flat and agricultural. Huge expanses of carefully tilled earth stretch away from either side of the long straight road. Soil looked black and rich. Could have grown anything there I guess. I bet it floods easy too. After crossing the Red River at Alexandria the agriculture gives way to infinite forests of pine. Nothing to do but roar on skirting the Fort Polk Military Reservation to Leesville.

The church had prepared snacks for us that we had before riding a short distance to the LaQuinta in Tyler. The hotel did not charge for the rooms and has been providing the rooms at no cost for many years.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Fredonia and Convention Center Nacogdoches
I stayed at this hotel when it was first opened, in 1955! I was so glad to hear that it had been restored and reopened. They did a beautiful job. It's in a great location near the historic downtown of Nacogdoches, the oldest town in Texas. The food was great, service was friendly and my room was comfortable. The best rooms are in a circle around the pool!
