We left Mississippi to continue eastward through Georgia. Around lunchtime we were near Atlanta, but we didn’t want to wait quite that long. Instead we stopped at Pine Mountain Gold Museum. First we ate lunch out on their picnic benches. Then we went inside to see the museum and get tickets for their train ride. The ride was fun, and the breeze was especially nice on the hot humid summer day.
The train conductor was fun and informative. Then we went for a little hike along their trails and saw the mines up close. There are also the remains of the old house you can walk around in.
At Atlanta we turned south again, on the I-75 then I-95, and headed straight for Miami. It took another day to get there, but the scenery was nice.
