|Georgia On My Mind
|The photos on this page were taken in the U.S. state of Georgia. From its
mountains in the north, to its swamps in the southeast, to the barrier islands
off of its coast; from the modern skyscrapers of Atlanta, to the quaint charm of
Savannah, to the quiet rural countryside, Georgia's landscapes are as
interesting and diverse as they are beautiful. -- Nancy
|On the old highway maps of America, the main routes were red and the back roads
were blue. Now even the colors are changing. But in those brevities just before
dawn and a little after dusk - times neither day nor night - the old roads return to
the sky some of its color. Then, in truth, they carry a mysterious cast of blue, and
it’s that time when the pull of the old blue highway is strongest.
-- From "Blue Highways" by William Least Heat-Moon
|The everyday kindness of America's back roads more than makes up for the chaos
in the headlines. But, thanks to the Interstate highway system, it is now possible
to travel across the country coast to coast without seeing a thing. -- Charles Kuralt
|What's mainly wrong with society today is that too many dirt roads have been
paved. There's not a problem today that wouldn't be remedied, if we just had more
dirt roads, because dirt roads give character. People who live at the end of dirt
roads learn early on that life is a bumpy ride. Most paved roads lead to trouble.
Dirt roads more likely lead to a fishing creek or a swimming hole. At the end of a
dirt road, the only time we ever locked our car was in August, because if we didn't,
some generous neighbor would fill it with too much zucchini. -- Paul Harvey
|Why is it that, on the highway of life, we most often recognize happiness
out of the rear view mirror? -- Robert Hawkins
