Mississippi Topography and Attractions
The name Mississippi is derived from a Native American word that means "great waters" or "father of waters". The state's topography slopes westward to the Mississippi River alluvial plain, from the hills in the northeast. The sandy soil of Southern Mississippi is mostly covered with pine forests. In August, 2005, this low-lying terrain was devastated by a Category 4 hurricane named Katrina. Mississippi's landmarks include the Natchez Trace Parkway, Vicksburg National Military Park, and Mississippi Petrified Forest.
