Savannah River
Talmadge Memorial Bridge
Factor's Row
Savannah, Georgia

5 Image Photomerge

This is probably one of my longest stitches ever but it was the only way to truly capture the size of the Savannah River, the Talmadge Bridge and I included the buildings along River Street as an afterthought and actually liked how it turned out. The boat you see in the near center of the image is one the largest I've ever seen, standing at around 14 stories, and the suspension bridge unbelievably high (17 stories tall or 185 ft) and long (1.9 miles). The bridge makes for an impressive structure in the background of the old buildings that line the riverside. Another impressive sight is watching the massive boats cruise up and down the river. The Port Of Savannah is the only second to Baltimore in the transhipment of containerized cargo of ports along the Atlantic.

Colonial Park Cemetery
Downtown Savannah, Georgia

Serving as Savannah's primary cemetery from 1750 to 1853 the Colonial Park Cemetery has only about 600 burial markers present but it is estimated that there are as many as 9,000 people buried here. During the Union occupation of Savannah during the Civil War Union troops made the cemetery an encampment and stabled horses here desecrating graves and tombs through looting, removing and destroying grave markers and changing dates on some tombstones in a bad attempt at humor. If one of the tampered dates was correct the oldest person buried here would have been 1,700 years old. Many of the tombstones were cemented to the eastern wall because no one knew were to replace them.

Declaration Of Independence signer Button Gwinnett is buried here.

Alt. State Route 75
Georgia

2 Image Photomerge

In light of my despise of heat and humidity I decided to reflect on a trip I took this past January though the Southern Appalachians. It has snowed several inches just to the north of here and we were going to be heading right into it. Here the lowlands got a light dusting of snow, the mountains were covered in a sheet of ice.

Tallulah Gorge State Park
Georgia

Completed in 1913, the Tallulah Gorge Dam not only greatly restricted the flow of water down the Tallulah River but also severely impacted the 5 falls along the river. At the top of the dam rests several gates that during certain times of the year are opened giving guests at the State Park an idea of what the falls looked like 100 years ago when there was no dam. The bridge above is US 441, which also travels across The Great Smokey Mountains National Park about and hour and a half away, give or take.
