Journey's end

At the Atlantic.

I laughed when I saw it.

Geese

This gaggle hustled across the path right in front of me, and then stopped so I could take their picture, honking furiously while they waited.

Rows of pines

Rows of pines

Looking down the paths between these perfectly regular rows to what was beyond as I ride by was like looking into a giant zoetrope.

It was beautiful.

Visibility was less than .25 mile

Approaching Monticello

I’ve seen a couple of towns in Florida that have courthouse squares similar to those in Texas. I’m approaching Monticello’s here.

View of the day

Tallahassee apparently has a number of these canopy roads and protects them. I rode along this one for about 10 miles today, and it was beautiful.

Four westbound riders

I saw these guys just east of Monticello and called out to them; we circled around and had a good talk. They rode down the Atlantic from Virginia and then got on the Southern Tier route

The Flora-Bama

This place’s schtick is that it straddles the state line. At midnight, all the customers get herded over to the Florida half, because of the different liquor licenses.

Go-Go road

A lot of the minor side roads in this part of the country have quirky names, often named after a local person—I remember "Clara & Clara Rd" for example. It would have been impractical to document even a fraction of them, but I had to grab this one.

Not just from Texas, apparently.

Sadly, this wasn’t representative of the whole day’s riding, but this tree-shaded road was an iconic view

Somehow I thought these were only in New Orleans. Guess not.

He’s surprisingly affectionate—trying to get me to scratch his head here.
