My friend, Jen Mouton, and I went on an exploration of backroads in May 2012 and found this road, the only remaining evidence of an old plantation outside St. Martinville, Louisiana. Preston Guidry told me about this place when I described the road leading to Indigo that lived inside my mind. (This road is close, but it’s not quite the road.) He also shared stories about growing up in this area and ones he wrote while studying cultural anthropology at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. More about that later.
