the country road on the E-Branch is tranqui (above on the right)l.

The tressel between Maryville and Lake Hamilton (above on the left) is quite small,
but the Mary Ann Bridge between Sherwood and North Park (above on the right) is BIG.

The town of North Park (above on the left) appears crowded, but
The Yards at I-49 and NoLaCRA (above on the right) are even more crowded.

In downtown Shreveport, some things are growing (above on the left)
