Louisiana – Atchafalaya Basin Bridge (part of US Interstate 10)

My favorite thing about traveling on Interstate 10 through Louisiana is the raised highway (called the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge – see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atchafalaya_Basin_Bridge)

The raised highway/bridge is a little more than 18 miles long.  It’s a beautiful area and fun to drive.

I stopped at the Welcome Center along the bridge.  It was recommended that I go down to the boat launch area nearby.  To my delight, the boat launch is one end of the body of water that runs under the raised highway – between the two directions of travel.
