Our Location: Roosevelt State Park, Morton, MS
We are nestled among the trees, too many trees in my opinion, with very little sunlight making it’s way to our Igloo. However I understand the trees allow campers to actually enjoy the area during the hot summer months and so it is what it is.

The park is very picturesque with an abundance of greens, browns, and a few splashes of fall colours here and there. The park is very hilly and makes walking a bit more difficult as it is constantly up and down hill, with some of them being very steep, while others are steep and long. I haven’t walked any of the trails but I have walked most of the way to the second campground which is a couple of miles away.

The grounds here are littered with dry brown leaves which crackle underfoot, long brown pine needles, pine cones and regular forest stuff. Under that is of course a bit of grass but mostly sand, a whitish sand which we are used to seeing in our many visits to Mississippi. Not quite the white sand of the beaches on the gulf coast but I suppose we could call it an ivory colour. Here and there are splashes of fall colour but for most part the trees here are still in leaf. Of course some never lose their foliage in this area until new leaves are pushing the old greens off, the Live Oaks come to mind.

This campground has 4 campers now including us and is pretty quiet overall. A few tenters with a couple of school age children were parked just down the way from us and it was nice to hear the little folks enjoying their warm days here in the park.

I don’t have a lot to share today so I’ll leave you with some photos of the park.

Until next time… take care, be safe,
