I am tempted to call this gallery part of my New Orleans photo collection. In reality, it is a two-hour ride from New Orleans proper in a part of Louisiana called Iberia Parish.
Avery Island is actually what is known as a salt dome. It is best known as the home of Tabasco Pepper Sauce, and it is an amazing place to visit. The McIlhenny family were incredible about protecting the natural habitat around their dynasty. The Jungle Gardens is the result of that commitment.
