I like old, mostly abandoned towns like I found in Thurmond. I had with me this pdf, which you might be interested in looking at: http://www.nps.gov/neri/historycultu...urmond2008.pdf
The roads around Thurmond were interesting too, as I hope you could see from my pictures. Fun to ride down and out of the canyon.
Interesting about the age. I seem to have read that somewhere. Only two rivers are known to be older, the Yangtze in China and the Meuse which flows through France, Belgium, and the Netherlands. I've been on the Yangtze, guess I'll have to put the Meuse on my list. Dang you.
