Butte La Rose and Henderson Louisiana...BEFORE the FLOOD
Butte La Rose is about 20 miles from here and Hendersen is even closer. I haven't been to either little area for years and now before it's gone, we drove there today. The following pictures show the homes which will be lost at Butte La Rose. Crossing the Atchafalaya Basin on I-10:
St. Landry Parrish Sheriff's department filling sandbags.
Homes on the other side of the levee. We drove the levee for a while.
