Cows Grazing On The Natchez Trace Parkway

Well, here’s something you don’t see every day…



Yep, on the Natchez Trace Parkway you can be one with nature, wildlife, and cows!

These cows were grazing within a few feet of the Parkway itself.


They had obviously escaped from some nearby fenced-in farmland.

Lots of us drivers were slowing down, in fear that they were going to cross the road.



The overly prepared one that I am, I had the Natchez Trace Parkway Emergency number (800) 300-7275 programmed into my cellphone (for those times when I’m out cycling on the Trace), so I phoned in this non-emergency emergency.

Them: Natchez Trace Parkway. What is your emergency.

Me: Well, I’m not sure if this is an emergency or not, but there are 4 cows grazing on the Parkway.

Them: Where?

Me: Between milemarker 414 and the bridge/overpass.

Them: Dang. That’s the same place we were called about yesterday. Thank you.

Just another interesting Sunday afternoon on the Natchez Trace Parkway. You never know what you’ll see next!…
