Parks and Sparks - June 26
I always make up a name for my trips, and this one is no exception. The 'Parks' will become quite evident, since we intend to visit six of our national parks in Wyoming, Montana, Utah and Colorado. The 'Sparks' might not be so obvious, but there is a reason for it to be a part of the journey.
Our first day was spent on some all too familiar interstate highways from Augusta, Georgia to Marion, Illinois. The only stopping we did was for gasoline, food and traffic, the latter of which there was plenty.
Hittin' the Road - Next is Chattanooga
We had a nice sunny day, but we've visited most of the sights along these roads. There are some that are still worth a picture through the windshield.
I always like to see this railroad bridge just after entering Tennessee for the second time.
Let me explain that caption on the above picture. We first enter Tennessee from Georgia just south of Chattanooga on I-75. Then there is a turnoff to I-24 which goes through the city and, a few miles beyond, the road enters Georgia again for about three miles. Once more the road curves back up into Tennessee and stays there on up to Nashville. And, believe it or not, there is a Georgia Welcome Center on that short stretch that goes back into the state..
We made good time and were in our hotel in plenty of time for me to soak in the hot tub.
