The Atchafalaya Basin is in one of the most ecologically varied regions in the United States. You may spy some of the 250 species of birds and 65 species of reptiles and amphibians on you trip. I-10 traverses through bottomland hardwood, bayous, backwater lakes and swamps. The waters of the Louisiana swamplands are so still that even the smallest creature can create a wake. Capture this unique calm with a photograph.
