Here are some photos of the Lafayette Opelousas area. I have already written about the music and food of the area. In this post I want to simply share images from the beautiful farm country and the some of the towns within it. You can click on an image to enlarge it.
I followed a guide provided by the St. Landry Parish Visitor Information Center that showed the scenic byways. The last three images are zydeco greats from a mural in Opelousas. I was fortunate enough to see Clifton Chernier and Boozoo Chavis live before they passed. I have a number of music videos with Buckwherat Zydeco and hope to see him live some day.
