This TR is a long ways from Southern California...

"If I leave here tomorrow,
Would you still remember me?
For I must be traveling on, now,
'Cause there's too many places I've got to see. "


Best way to recover from a red eye flight that had free all you can drink margaritas, go for a hot humid hike!  First some greasy breakfast at Atlanta's OK Cafe.
 

From the NP webpage, "The name Kennesaw is derived from the Cherokee Indian "Gah-nee-sah" meaning cemetery or burial ground.
Kennesaw Mountain Battlefield is a 2,923 acre National Battlefield that preserves a Civil War battleground of the Atlanta Campaign. The battle was fought here from June 19, 1864 until July 2, 1864. Sherman's army consisted of 100,000 men, 254 guns and 35,000 horses. Johnston's army had 63,000 men and 187 guns.   Over 67,000 soldiers were killed, wounded and captured during the Campaign."

We hiked from Burnt Hickory Road to the summit of Kennesaw Mountain.  

Shockingly green.  See the trees though the trees:




Interesting history lesson as we hiked.








Lets not break an ankle.










Note the defacing of Sherman.


From the ashes.


Time for some real BBQ and ice tea.


So good!


"But, if I stayed here with you girl,
Things just couldn't be the same.
Cause I'm as free as a bird now,
And this bird you'll never change.
And this bird you can not change.
Lord knows, I can't change.
Lord help me, I can't change. "
