The winds in Georgia are coming off the Gulf of Mexico this winter, so that the air is warm. It's good weather for the road.
We took the bike up to northeast Georgia and western North Carolina. The mountains are still bare, so that the rocks and waterfalls are easily seen from a great distance. Nevertheless there is proof of life in the warm winter.
The Methodist Church in Clayton, Georgia. Clayton is an increasingly fun town, with an outstanding hardware store (featuring archery, guns, camping gear, and the lot), and several good restaurants and bars. One of the bars is built out of a refinished service station, called "The Universal Joint." Camp at Black Rock Mountain, a thousand feet above, and you'll hear them rocking down below.
So much for the city. Beyond, in the Wild, flowers grow.
Georgia Veronica Blue, one of our native glories.
Nandina berries, which are not native but invasive. "All parts of the plant are poisonous." It's also known as 'sacred bamboo.'
Daffodils in wintertime. These broke out on the last day of January this year.
