Hometown landscape

I have been watching True Detective season 1.  One of the things I love about the show is how the coastal Louisiana landscape reminds me of the area I grew up in, in Michigan.  Very flat, swampy, industrial, green, humid.  M-13 runs past the southern outskirts of the east bank of Bay City, a stretch called River Road because it runs next to the Saginaw River.  I always found that area oddly intoxicating because it seemed like what I imagined the Louisiana bayou to be like.  I have never visited southwest Lousiana, but the landscape is instantly familiar to me.
