The quiet is what I enjoy about backpacking – not the silence. Without products and people vying for my attention I have the opportunity to return to myself. In this video I try to share that experience by creating a soundscape of the hike.
In this hike I splice together the current Tuxachanie Trail with part of the Bigfoot Red Loop to closely follow the original path.
Obviously I had no idea what I had walked into until I got home and looked it up online. The people here are primarily descendant from Chitimacha and Houma tribes.
Last week I explored the Pointe des Chene Wildlife Management Area. It is about an hour and a half south of New Orleans and covers an area of 33,488 acres. I managed to walk a stretch of about five miles.
