And a Bentley going really really really slow, making my inability to photograph it even more humiliating.

A Malaisey personal luxury coupe something-or-other. I feel like I should know this.

EDIT: Thank you to MM54 for pointing out that as a ‘69 Chevy Impala, which means it is not at all Malaise.

Impressive.

And now to unsolicited hiking and dog photos.

First, I took an up close look at the ruins of the abandoned Glover-Wilder Tannery. Only this one structure remains after the three building complex was burned by Union troops during the Civil War.

Oakton, the oldest house left in the area, is for sale. Unfortunately the land it is on is so valuable that no one can afford it. Unfortunately the massive front yard is going to be parceled off so that the manor house can survive. Sad, really.

Today I walked around the Camp Brumby area of Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park to avoid the crowds. It was nice and quiet in the loop around the area where the CCC (Civilan Conservation Corps) once camped. During the Great Depression, the CCC built the network of trails and roads on the site, installing numerous monuments and plaques to commemorate certain areas, stimulating the local economy along the way.
