... and Spanish moss trees all along the route. Passed by lots of bayou's all along the way. Kept looking out for alligators. Yikes!! Our first stop was in Duson, LA where we stayed at the Frog City RV Park. It was a nice park for the night and the folks were extremely hospitable. The area is known for its Boudin and Cracklins.
