Ocmulgee National Monument in Georgia

Near the small town of Macon Georgia, there is a First Nation site of significant importance.  It’s the massive Ocmulgee mounds, and they have a wonderful museum and visitor’s center.

Just for some scale, that is a picture of Glenn atop one of the biggest mounds:

The tribes built supported tunnels and chambers into the center of these mounds.

The center allows visitors to enter these chambers and experience the majesty of their pre-Columbian lifestyle.

At a certain point, Glenn fell off the edge of the mound.  Before I went to help him off the ledge, I snapped this photo.  Documentation comes first, then safety.

 

The second 2006 roadtrip was not conducted on alternative fuels.
