52 Fridays: #10 – Georgia

I love what I know of Georgia, although admittedly, that is not a lot.  My impressions:  the red dirt, the mountains, the mist, the super hip city of Atlanta rising up in the midst of it.   As of this week, I know a little bit more, and it looks like there is a pretty cool art scene in this peach of a state!  I am particularly impressed with Troy Wandzel’s work – click on the picture to check out more for yourself!  Have fun, y’all.

Fascinating facts:

– Wesleyan College in Macon was the first college in the world chartered to grant degrees to women.

– Stone Mountain near Atlanta is one of the largest single masses of exposed granite in the world.

– The sweetest onion, the Vidalia, can only be grown in the fields around Vidalia and Glennville.

Next Friday, friends, we hit Hawaii!  I’m so excited!  I’ve always wanted to go there…
