Now, just take a look and see how many of these things you would NOT see if you travel I-75.Traveling through small towns reminded us of our Route 66 trip. We were surprised to find gas cheaper in some of these small towns.
What some folks may call old buildings, we see as history. Glad someone is taking care of them. A great part of the site seeing experience.
We didn't realize our paths would cross until we saw this statue. This was the intersection we had crossed a week ago on the way to Jacksonville, Fl from Macon, GA.
I am a Civil War - Gone with the Wind nut.
So you know what these sights made me think.
As we got closer to the Smoky Mountains, we saw LOTS of apple businesses.
It was a VERY long day of driving. Mr. G thought he was destined to spend the rest of his life in Georgia. We got back on the Interstate in Cleveland, TN, which meant we had skirted the horrible Friday rush hour in both Atlanta and Chattanooga. On the radio we kept hearing of accidents and backed up traffic on the roads we would have taken. Not once were we in a back up, not even behind a farm tractor! I'm so glad we didn't miss seeing these sights and glad I got to "shoot" them.
