Today’s Photo: The Infantryman
I spent a couple hours walking through the National Infantry Museum at Fort Benning. It is a sobering experience walking through the hall of the museum and seeing the history of infantry in the United States. This shot is of the Infantryman statue that sits under the rotunda at the entrance to the museum.

Fernbank Museum of Natural History in Atlanta is a pretty cool place. Behind the museum proper, they have a series of trails and boardwalks. I had to battle swarming bees to get to this place, but it was an interesting view of some old architecture and new.
Today’s Photos: Woodstock Fireworks
Every July 4 in the US requires red, white, and blue fireworks. This display was in Woodstock. While it was not the most comfortable, the rain cleared out just in time and it wasn’t too bad getting to sit in the back of the van and watch.

Purely by accident did I run across this cannon demonstration. I decided to take the kids for a short hike on Kennesaw Mountain Labor Day weekend. As I got the little one in his backpack carrier, they announced the demonstration. I wish they had fired the cannon more than twice. This was the second. Man was it loud too. I think the boy is a future tanker or artillery man. All he wanted to say after this was “Cannon” and “Boom Crash”.

Having someone with local knowledge is tons of fun. Especially in a city like Savannah. There were so many stories that I could not remember them all. At least I got the location right for this one. I think my guide said something about this place being haunted, but I remember that about all the places we went.
