Louisiana doesn’t have a lot of elevation. In fact, there are huge stretches of Louisiana that are in the flood plain—but that doesn’t mean we don’t have any heights. Driskill Mountain, the highest point in Louisiana, reaches 535 ft. and offers amazing views of surrounding hills. It’s really special there.
