New Orleans Levee, Mississippi River Levee

        When surrounded by water as much of South Louisiana is Levee’s are very important.  Levees are made of clay covered with grass to keep the water on the other side.  This one is on the Mississippi River not to far from where I live.  One of the recreational benefits is that they stretch for miles and miles.  You can jog, roller blade, cycle and just plain walk along the small road on top.  Not uncommon to see ocean going ships going up and down river with their cargo from all over the world.
