Atchafalaya Swamp Tour in Louisiana

One thought on “Atchafalaya Swamp Tour in Louisiana”

  1. Thank you for this peek into the region I have always longed to visit, and the informative history. Perhaps I long for it because I am of French Canadian blood – though my ancestors apparently weren’t there yet when the Great Upheaval occurred, or somehow managed to stay put until their move to the US in the mid 1800’s.
    As for the oil spill – I grieve for Mother Earth and the chaos this is going to cause. I don’t like to buy into the whole 2012 end of times things, but it’s scary to think . . . this could be the start. Too many people don’t realize that the extinction of species and ecosystems has far reaching and deadly effects on our very existence.
