Don Bain's 360° Panoramas of
The Great River Road in Mississippi
No single road follows the Mississippi, but a series of federal and state highways have been joined together and defined as "The Great River Road", all the way from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico.
In the state of Missippi the east bank of the river consists of a ridge of loess (wind-deposited glacial dust from the end of the ice age) that stands high above the river. Two very interesting small cities, Vicksburg and Natchez, were built on this high ground. In its southern stretches the Natchez Trace parallels the Great River Road.
