I have lived on the coast in the past, and as far north in MS as I have been is Jackson. I heard that there are definitely big hills in northeast MS, does anyone have an pics of the landscape in northeast MS ? I can't seem to find any on the net.

I would love to see what this area of the state looks like.


Thanks

I have traveled from Meridian all the way to Memphis and can't say I remember seeing any hilly areas.

There definitely are some good hills throughout Mississippi. But they are naturally difficult to photograph. I've taken a few decent pictures of considerable hills in central Texas (i.e. Texas Hill Country) and even those pictures don't do any justice. It's just really hard to get a good picture of hills unless the hill sticks out, or if the landscape is fairly barren to begin with (grasslands or plains). Unfortunately or perhaps fortunately, most of Mississippi's topography is covered with heavy foliage. The best thing you can do is just take a drive around Mississippi one weekend. Just don't expect mountains.

North MS has beautiful hills. I'm now living in the Blue Ridge Mountains, which some would say is one of the most beautiful areas in the U.S., but I remember the MS hills very fondly. If you're headed for a tour of the area, make sure not to miss the areas around Oxford, such as hwy 315 (off of HWY 7 near Water Valley) and the surrounding countryside. If you want to see a crazy, twisty road with good views, you'll have to follow the road out of Oxford that goes by the town landfill--Pearidge Road. It ends on another road, but take a left and go a few hundred feet to put yourself back on hwy 7. Catching the Natchez Trace from Tupelo toward Tishomingo State Park is a pretty ride. In Tishomingo you can even rock climb, thought the rock faces are not very high. It is a great state park with canoing and hiking.

Sorry I don't have any digital pics. I was shooting film back when I lived there.
