Louisiana: Lake Fausse Point State Park in Autumn

Lake Fausse Point State Park, Louisiana. November 2013.


From a visit to Lake Fausse Point State Park in late November:

Funny, I'd assumed that one pronounced "fausse" like "hoss." But a long-time Louisiana resident pronounced it "fossy."

So now I just had a crazy idea - what if I called the park and asked for the correct pronunciation?  So I did. It's "fossy," rhyming with "mossy."

As you may recall, I saw a number of armadillos here.   

I heard a lot of gunshots, and another visitor conjectured the sounds were from duck hunters.
