Natchez Trace Bridge.
My first time going over this, it was windy and it scared the crap out of me.
I had to ride in the center of the rode at a very slow pace, I am afraid of heights and this was over my limits. This picture was taken on the returning loop, the wind was calm but I still couldn't look over the edge of the bridge.

Colbert Ferry, this is our final destination for this trip. Starting at mile marker 440 and fishing up at mile marker 327 one way, heading south on the Natchez Trace Parkway. This was a loop for us, since we had to double back to get the car one day, then we slack packed the final loop. Great view looking at the John Coffee Bridge.
Not the Coffee, I was in need of several mornings on the trip. This is the John Coffee Memorial Bridge in Alabama we are on.
Natchez Trace Parkway, Tennessee, Alabama state line.
Not much there as far as a welcome center is concerned but there is shade and a picture stop.
Along the Natchez Trace Parkway around mile marker 350 is a town small little town, Collinwood TN. The town offers their Fire Station for cyclist to stay the night and it's free, they have showers, TV, electric to recharge devices and more. We did not cook food, there was a wonderful diner in town, with awesome service and great food. If you don't want to stay in the Fire Station, they have a park just 50' away in the back, where you can pitch your tent and still use the facility.
There are not a lot of rest stops along the route, when we came across one it was awesome. Every bathroom we stopped at on the Natchez Trace, was very clean and had running water.
