    I won't be coming from East, TX. It is 90-100.% rain in East TX & LA.

    Ladies there is right now 100% chance of rain for Saturday. Of course this being Louisiana that could change. Alecia will make a decision by 6 pm Thursday as to whether or not she feels we should reschedule but I want to go ahead and give y'all a heads up that this may have to be rescheduled.

    There is a clear, shallow stream on the Backbone trail, that we may have to cross by foot. There are no stones or logs to use to cross it. Hopefully, it will be dry. Bring a small towel, just in case we have to remove socks and shoes to cross. Waterproof boots will work, as long as it is not too deep. It was about 6-8 inches deep last time I was there, but it was a fairly wet time of year.

    Gps coordinates to where we will meet forBackbone hike:[masked],-93.018239.
    (Parish road 830.)The turn off for the lot is to the left if coming in from the south end of 830, onto Mora Red Dirt road. The parking lot is to the right, shortly after you turn onto this road. You will probably see other cars and horse trailers. I don't really remember turning off the parish road prior to the parking lot, but google maps show that to be true. So, probably, I just forgot that part. In none gps terms, take I-49 south if coming from Natchitoches, take exit 119 LA 119, Clouterville, turn RT onto LA 119, travel 5.1 miles, turn RT onto PR 830 ( this sign is kinda hard to see), drive for approx 4 miles, turn LT onto PR 329, parking area is on the RT. We will attempt a better head count as we get nearer to the date.

    Hey Cheri, we have about 20 Acadiana Lady Hikers planning on hiking the Backbone with you guys, we are looking forward to it! Is there an address I could put in my gps to find where we will meet?

    Thanks!

      I have never been so not sure. This will be my first time. I got the directions from my 50 Louisiana Hikes book so let me look when I get home and see if they have one in there. I'll text Alecia too.
