Thomson to Galax

Autumn 2012

On August 15, 2012 I departed from Jupiter and headed north along I-95 on my way to Georgia. Having traveled this route several times already, I didn’t feel motivated to take any more photos on this first leg of the trip. My travelogue update after reaching Thomson, Georgia on day #1 of the trip can be read here.

After stopping in Thomson for the night, I continued north into South Carolina and North Carolina. Just north east of Hendersonville, I stopped to tour Chimney Rock State Park.

After taking several photos around Chimney Rock, including a large group of foreign university students from Italy, as I recall, I met up with the Blue Ridge Parkway near Morganton, NC. Final stop for the day was at a motel in Galax, Virgina.

My travelogue update after reaching Galax, Virginia on day #2 of the trip can be read here.

The following map shows my route for the day. (Click on the map to enlarge.)
