Doing the "Grand Tour of Georgia" with 20 locations/destinations to seek out and photograph.
This looks like fun and with the out of the way places I will covet and uncover even more of Georgia.
So far:

That looks like a fun way to get out and see the state. I was thinking about registering myself. I don't know if I would have the time to visit all 20 locations.

Why yes there is....

Well thanks for sharing and providing a couple more worthy destinations for us. We will most certainly place these on our ride list.

@Jub.... you don't have to visit all 20, they give you a break and only require 18 sites visited by November. As much riding as you do, shouldn't be a problem.

How do you beat the heat while riding in August? Easy when you head over to the Little River Canyon in Cherokee County, Alabama.




Then lunch in Centre

I was here in 2008 on my Nomad, took basically the same photo. Unfortunately there is a lot of grafitti on the bridge as can be seen in the photo.

Not GA but...

Here are a few I've found in NC, for when you run out of ones to visit at home.
Pisgah Covered Bridge

Bunker Hill Bridge

As far as I know, these are the only 2 historical covered bridges left in NC.
