My pup, Domineaux, finally getting the hang of being a good canoe dog.

Very cool trip report on the other thread--I was very surprised by the topography, much less boogery than I'd expect of Southern Mississippi...I'd come closer to thinking y'all were in the Tupelo region.

Ha! There's plenty of swamp booger country to the south of here. I grew up in South Louisiana. The beauty of these southern Mississippi hills is what drew my family to here many years ago.

A small aside: The town of Summit, MS, a few miles to the North was named such because it is the highest point on the railroad between New Orleans and Chicago. But that's not saying much when you consider the endless miles of corn flats...

Very cool--I've lived in all the states contiguous with Mississippi, but not Mississippi itself (spent a lot of time on Hwy. 82, though, when I lived in Birmingham and would go back to visit my folks in Arkansas.) Between pine plantations and a 150 years of the plow, I suppose all these physiographic regions blend into one another these days, but it's great to get a few reminders of what they would have signified to the first people rolling through.

We discussed some of these things on the float - namely, how grand it would be to see the river and countryside as it was 500, 1000, or 10,000 years ago...
