Southeast U.S.

Thanks to Hurricane Irma I received another all expenses paid trip to the southeastern states. Brief stops in Columbia, S.C., Jacksonville, FL. and then two weeks in Atlanta. Here are a few pictures.

Stone Mountain, Georgia. A Georgia legislator has actually called for this immense carving to be removed. Good luck with that.

Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park. Not a lot to see as battlefield’s go but the Visitor’s Center has a nice museum and it shows an interesting film. There was a big crowd at the park but most had come to hike the mountain.
