Oak Alley and other pictures

This is snapped from the second floor veranda, which goes completely around the house. We are facing the front of the house. There is a levy at the end of the trees and across the road. These Live Oaks are approximately 300 years old the trees in the back of the house are only about a 150 years old.(bottom photo)

The fountain is behind the house and as you can see flowers were blooming every where. April is a good month to visit Oak Alley. The azaleas were in full bloom.

More artwork by the wood carver believed to be Marlin Miller at Pass Christian Park.
Notice the trailer in the background is their public library.
