April 26, 2014 – Saturday (Continued)
We left our visit with Elvis, and got back on the Trace heading north for a short distance to one of the official Headquarters for the Natchez Trace Parkway at mile marker 266. Today they had some exhibits and demonstrations outside of the visitor center. The teenagers at the booths loved the dogs and were on their hands and knees playing with them.
The center had a nice wall display about the history of the Trace, a gift shop, and a room showing a video about the Trace. Back outside, we looked at some of the exhibits, such as turtles, alive and shells. There were animal pellets hanging off one of the tables. Chica walked up to them, took a smell and quickly backed up like she was afraid but kept going back up to smell them again.
