We took a 2 hour drive to Reelfoot Lake to do a little photography and walk some trails. A lot of things have changed since we visited it as children. The boardwalk through the marshy area was a nice walk to take and we saw water snakes, herons, ducks, turtles and fish. There is a nice visitor center where you can handle live snakes (we didn't) and learn about the history of the area including the lake's formation by the New Madrid earthquakes of 1811-1812. There is a seismometer there as well. This was a nice way to spend an afternoon. There are restaurants right across the street.
