Welcome to Georgia

Wednesday, May 30 – Ok, so this state entrance was a little disappointing…  We entered the state from the Alabama suburb of Columbus, Georgia called Phenix City.  (That’s not a typo.)  The state line is also the Chatahoochee River, and since it is in an urban area, a lot was going on in almost every department: traffic, navigation and signage.  Thus, my state entrance photo leaves quite a bit to be desired.  And on top of all that commotion, there was no beautiful “Welcome to Georgia” sign.  Instead, it’s a mish-mash of signs marking the bridge, the highway number, the river, the county line, the city limits, the Chatahoochee River Inland Waterway, and a very non-descript state line sign that I almost missed.  At least I got a good shot of the Camaro billboard.  As you can see, I was pretty disappointed all around, including in my photography skills. 

As a consolation prize, I got the “buckle up” sign, which at least has the state of Georgia on it, even though it’s buckled-in.
