Where Route 11 begins



















































Dear children -

Here are some pictures of the beginning of Route 11, which starts just east of New Orleans, in Louisiana. I walked a few miles on this part of the highway last Saturday. My husband, Guy, took these photos.

The little castle in the last photo surprised me - a bit of whimsy in the wetlands. It looks like it's sinking, doesn't it? If we don't stop the warming of the climate, places like this will be permanently flooded. It's easy to say that people shouldn't build there in the first place, but I'm sure the people who built this castle didn't realize what the future might bring. And now they probably love it so much they don't want to give up on it.
