We headed out of Atlanta late last night and went just far enough to get away from the trashy truckstops everyone had warned us about right in Atlanta. As I said, it's cold down here! Georgia is, in my opinion, about on par with South Carolina in terms of non-scenery. I did find a few noteworthy sights...
|Big on Pecans here. And Mr. Trucker says that Vidalia Onions|
actually COME from Georgia. Who knew?
|Not exactly subtle, eh? I saw two of them just like this,|
right out in the open and perpendicular to the traffic
|So, is Wisconsin like the ONLY state without real mountains?|
We entered Tennessee just outside of Chattanooga
|Their college football team is called "The Vols"|
|Mr. Trucker wanted you to see that we were on an island when|
we stopped at this Rest Area. Surrounded by the Tennessee River
and Nickajack Lake.
Shortly after this rest stop, we climbed Monteagle Mountain, which at 2100 feet above sea level, is the highest point between Chicago and Miami, on Interstate 24.
|BBQ for lunch!!|
Here's my picture of the day, taken in Tennessee...
