The Mississippi River Flows by the
New Orleans French Quarter
The Reason New Orleans was settled by the French in 1718 was its position and high ground on the Mississippi River. Today it is a must see place and it runs from Elysian Fields to Canal Street with plenty of access fromt he French Quarter.
This first photo is of the setting sun in the early evening. We are looking east but it is the West Bank of New Orleans. The name Crescent City means the Mississippi is making a big curve on its way to the Guld of Mexico.
