Barataria Preserve, Jean Lafitte, LA

Settled by Native Americans perhaps as long as 2,000 years ago and
later the haunt of privateer and smuggler Jean Lafitte and his Baratarians,
the preserve near the town of Jean Lafitte, only 30 minutes from
New Orleans, still maintains a sense of mystery and quietude; a perfect
escape from the city on a weekend afternoon.
