Vacation 08

We drove on our vacation in July. The posts I made earlier about vacation were about the second part, when we spent time in Buffalo with my family. The first half, though, was spent with Mrs. Doohickie's family in Albany, NY.

The route we took was from Fort Worth to Albany going through Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, a little bit of Georgia, then swinging north through Tennessee, Virginia, West-Virginia-and-Maryland (cutting across both states in about a half hour), Pennsylvania and on into New York State. A few scenes from along the way. This was a random church tower you could see from the highway.

We made a left just before Atlanta and swung north. Which is good, cuz I HATE driving in Atlanta.

I think the rolling hills of the Appalachian Mountains are just beautiful. The Rockies are awe-inspiring, but the Appalachians are gorgeous.

Somehow, when you arrive at a Motel 6 and the police are trying to get a domestic dispute between guests settled, you notice signs like this more.
