Georgia Rest Stop to Chattanooga, Tennessee
Do you remember picnic table shelters such as the one above from when you were a kid? It brought back memories for me.
This was our last stop in Georgia. I love the rest stops. Each state seems to try to out do the next.
Look at the size of this pine tree. Of course, Georgia is known for its furniture manufacturers and paper mills that make good use of these trees.
There were more beautiful blossoms here, too, but these came at a price. They were not only covered iwth bees, there were tiny gnats that followed us back to the car. We were still swatting them as we entered Tennessee.
But first, we passed Atlanta. Do you know what those things are over the highway in the image above? They are landing lights for the airport and, yes, the planes fly very low over the road. Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture of one as it buzzed our car.
On we went to Chattanooga....
...where we spent the night. Above is the only quick image I could get of the huge train yard in Chattanooga. I took that image on our way to the National Military Cemetery in Chattanooga. Images to follow tomorrow.
