Cypress Island Preserve

My last stop of the day was an unplanned one.  One of the employees at Evangeline-Longfellow State Park recommended I stop here.  Cypress Island is managed by the Nature Conservancy and appears to be a popular fishing spot.

I ran into a couple of hikers making the entire loop around Lake Martin, which actually seems to be more of a swamp than a lake.  I didn’t leave myself enough time to do the whole thing so I hiked about 1/4 or so of the trail and then back.  About half of the trail is actually a gravel road so I got to see most of the preserve.

 

 

 


Longfellow-Evangeline State Historic Site

Just north of St. Martinsville, in St. Martin Parish, Louisiana is Longfellow-Evangeline State Historic Site which has been set up to show what life was like for the early Creole and Acadian settlers.  This cabin is a typical structure of the earliest settlers.
