butterfly weed and Queen Anne's Lace

I don't know the botanical names for these orange wildflowers. My grandmother called it Butterfly Weed, because the winged beauties just can't stay away. There was a chorus of crickets practicing for its sunset performance. Ah, living in North Georgia is the life...

Tunnel Hill GA covered bridge

This little covered bridge sits on Clisby Austin Rd as it crosses Tanyard Creek. Located on each side of the bridge are small viewing platforms. Looking out the left side, you can see trains running the Western & Atlantic route from Chattanooga TN through Dalton GA. To the right, the Clisby Austin House and Tunnel Hill Civil War battlefield can be seen from the bridge.
