2013 Road Trip With Carol, Part 3: Popcorn Overlook, Near Clayton, Georgia

My mother, Carol, and I went on a road trip in October that took us through North Carolina and Tennessee.

Part 1 here and Part 2 here

'twas somewhat early in the morning when we stopped, hence the picturesque mist.

We pulled over for a look-see at the Popcorn Overlook. I like this excerpt from the website:

... educational signs are on-site for the intellectually curious.

That extra little bit about the "intellectually curious." Not for those who are so bored while their companions take photo after photo after photo that they are reduced to reading the educational (gag! educational!) signs, not for the casually curious, not for the illiterati who only like to look at pictures.

It makes me nostalgic for the person who wrote the pithy interpretive signs at the Cypress Swamp Trail on the Natchez Trace Parkway.
