Poverty Point State Park
Not long ago Dave and I drove up to north Louisiana to Delhi, LA where we tent camped at Poverty Point State Park.
We saw lots of deer tracks while hiking the trails. Last week, we got lots of rain and there was soft mud everywhere! Some parts of the trails we hiked were under water.
This is a close up of a deer track.
Something tore this tree up! Maybe Bigfoot?
High water next to the trail.
Water had overflowed from the Poverty Point reservoir.
Banded water snake sunning himself. He was so cold that Dave and I were able to bend down close to him and take lots of pictures.
A close up of his face.
Something weird growing on the tree. Saw this on a few other trees too.
More deer tracks.
We had lots of fun at Poverty Point. Our camping spot was nice and clean and it was relatively quiet at night. I heard an owl a few times, but he was far away. It only costs $16 a night to stay there. On the night we stayed, it got down to 38 degrees! We weren't cold. We had our flannel lined sleeping bags plus our down comforter.
If tent or RV camping isn't your idea of roughing it, Poverty Point had cabins and lodges for rent. The cabins are very nice and overlook the water. You can fish from your back porch! Stayed tuned for my next post about Poverty Point State Historic Site, home to ancient Indian mounds!
