Let's face it, things have been pretty hectic this holiday season.  Basically, it's the first time in years we've been able to have a full-blown family Christmas.  What I'm saying is this: You've most likely been under a lot of pressure to go from house to house visiting everyone, worrying about presents and holiday dinners.  I, for one, think you need a break - and I've found the perfect escape.

This Gorgeous Airbnb On The Cane River, Which is Basically The Red River's Daughter

Just about an hour to the south east of Shreveport, you'll find the beautiful Cane river.  The Cane was actually born from where the mighty Red River used to run through Natchitoches, Louisiana.  In 1836, the Red River shifted its course and started flowing down the eastward channel which was called the "Rigolette de Bon Dieu."  This was most likely due to the work being done to remove the "Great Raft" at the time.  The Great Raft was 160+ miles of log jam in the Red River that raised the water level significantly and is responsible for the creation of Caddo and Cross Lakes.  When the river shifted, it left behind what we call the Cane River.
