When planning our Rollin’ on the River road trip in 2011, we thought it would be fun to spend a night in a plantation. Based on positive online reviews, we decided on Nottoway Plantation, right on the banks of the Mississippi in White Castle, LA (we combined our stay with a highly worthwhile swamp tour near Breaux Bridge, LA). Our stay in Nottoway ended up exceeding all expectations and to this day remains one of our favorite hotel experiences (our room was in the Boys’ Wing, part of the historically intact 1859 mansion). Room rates include breakfast and a guided tour of the estate. With a pool and a restaurant Nottoway really has everything you need on-site, and after the daytime tour groups leave you feel like you own the place.

As we started back toward the car after sunset, we happened to turn around on just the right section of trail and at just the right moment to see the full moon coming up over the arch. Five minutes sooner or later and we would have missed it.03.31.21 : View from the Chesler Park Trail in the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park.
