Yesterday we took off for the highland region of Georgia. I figured we would be about a week late for the colors and we were. But it was still a beautiful drive through the Chatahoochee National Forest and points between there and Chickamauga.
We enjoy touring the battlefields. While Dan particularly likes looking at the monuments and photographing them, I prefer to stand on the battlefields, close my eyes and try to imagine all that had gone on there. I don't think we truly appreciate the sacrifices that were made on our OWN soil.
There was an old one room cabin still standing (that neither one of us got a photo of!) that had been inhabited by a black man and his family which in the end consisted of 29 CHILDREN THAT HE FATHERED!! The man died at 123 years of age!
So, here are a few photos. Dan took the ones of the monuments.
