... of pine needles below them all along the highway. The grass is a little greener.
We cross into Georgia and almost immediately there is a change. Some farm fields are a carpet of bright green (alfalfa or wheat???) Some fields have cattle and horses. One even had some donkeys. We got a good laugh when I call a miniature horse a "toy horse". Oh, well—whatever word works!
