Bucket List Trip 2016~Day 50~Jacksonville, TX to Mansfield, Louisana

As we left Jacksonville, Texas
I began to realize we were back in the land of green grass and a variety of tall trees!
Yea!  Missed you grass and trees as I always do when I'm in Texas.
We took a big U turn in eastern Texas going into Louisiana today. 
We checked out a few towns with interesting names which rewarded us with a beautiful drive.

Didn't realize until we had passed through,
this is the home of Stephen F. Austin University.

 On 2 sides of the courthouse, parking was available in the middle of the street.

 Toledo Bend Reservoir of the Sabine River at the Texas -Louisiana state line

 A quick research of the bridge did not tell me how the length of the bridge,
 but it felt to be about a mile and half long.

Not intended, but we were on this route most all day.

 This brick street on the river reminded me of Savannah, GA.

 Our late lunch view in Natchitoches, LA on the Cane River.
We headed on to our hotel for the night.
At one point was a cotton collection sight.
The road was scattered with cotton that had flown from the trucks.
For lack of a suitable hotel in Shreveport, LA
we ventured over to Mansfield, LA and found a very nice spot.
The staff at this Comfort Inn is super nice and wants to do anything to make our stay pleasant.

Follow along on our trip as I will try to post daily.
