After Thanksgiving, we drove from Natchez to Nashville on the Natchez Trace, the longest National Park, 440 miles. We went out of our way near Port Gibson to visit the Windsor Mansion Ruins, photos of which I will share tomorrow. But the first thing we saw as we turned into the short road toward the ruined mansion was this enormous oak tree. There are many ancient oak trees in the southeastern US, but this one is huge, much larger than the one in McMinnville that is more than 150 years old. Judy is standing near the tree to provide some perspective on the size of this tree. The Windsor Mansion was built during 1859-1861 and although I cannot find specific information on this tree, it must have been here long before the construction of the house. What stories could it tell?
