Yesterday I decided to drive Hwy 14 from just north of Montgomery back home to Auburn, instead of I-85. It definitely took longer, but what I experienced was well-worth the extra time in the car. Driving through the country in the south with the radio up and the windows down is something everyone must do at some point in their life. Yes it’s hot, but when the breeze dries the sweat on your skin – something magical happens. I can’t quite explain it.
Along the west side of the river in Tallassee, Alabama, I came along a little winding road that ran beside the dam and found these abandoned mills. Look at all that lush greenery. You have to admit – even though kudzoo is invasive, it’s very beautiful!
