AND STILL MORE TRAVELS

We finished up our visit to Anna Ruby Falls and the covered bridge by swinging back by the Indian Mounds near Helen, GA. I think this mound preceded the Cherokee but they used it, too. Now it sits in the middle of a cow pasture and boasts a gazebo on top.

I took a photo of the mound and the sign with my phone. My guy took one with his camera. Then he did some arty stuff to it and it looks really cool. Bet you can tell which one's which!

    1. It really is lovely. If there were seats, you could sit there and be at peace. Well, except for the cows.

  3. I've heard about the various mounds and earthworks tribes have done throughout the States, but I've never seen them myself.

    1. Well, if you ever get near Helen GA, look for this one. There are also some near Cartersville but I've not seen those yet.

  4. Cool looking place, great photos. When I lived back in Tennessee I used to like to go look for Indian mounds and other historical sites. Out in L.A. where I am now I don't think the indigenous people who were here did any mound building. However they've now built many casinos.

    1. Bet they're making more money now than they did with the mounds! And maybe you know: wasn't it the peoples before the Cherokee and Creek, etc. who built the mounds? And then the later natives used them? I'm sure I've heard that somewhere!
