 Jenny hopes to change people's idea of what these mounds are about. For some landowners, planting another field of cotton would be more resourceful to their bottom line than preserving an ancient relic that means little to them. It makes sense.

 Large field tractors give the term "Share the Road" new meaning in upstate Louisiana. While driving to Monroe from Arnaudville I saw cattle farms turn to cotton, soy, and wheat fields. You can sense a change in economic drivers when you drive so many miles in a day. I started this day out in Pierre Part where there are fishermen, trappers, and oil men.

Makes you love Louisiana even more...
