We left to head towards Huntsville, Alabama westward through Georgia. There are a lot of rivers and small lakes along the way.
We saw a lot of Spanish Moss hanging from trees, and more interesting homes and small towns built in the 1800’s. They all have pillars or columns and covered porches to sit outside in their rocking chairs. Some of the homes looked like large plantation homes.
We saw many soy and cotton fields, and a coupe Piggly Wiggly stores. Tall thin evergreen trees line the interstate and the smaller highways. We were traveling on the HERITAGE CORRIDOR, the Nature Route.
The South Carolina National Heritage Corridor (SCNHC) was designated by Congress in 1996 as a National Heritage Area (a program of the National Parks Service). Stretching 17 counties and 320 miles across South Carolina, the SCNHC is committed to promoting and preserving the cultural, natural and historic resources of South Carolina. We’re here to guide you along the way as you discover some of the most unique places in the Palmetto State.
Then we crossed into Georgia, known for their peaches and for the Laurel & Hardy Museum in Harlem, Georgia. Harlem is the birthplace of Oliver Hardy, the portly half of the world-famous duo.
We found our campground near Lake Oconee, GA and set up and relaxed.
I looked to see if there was an Elks Lodge nearby and there was, so we went off for a little social time. The have a nice patio to sit outside and enjoy the forest that surrounds their lodge.
