When we were visiting Georgia, we actually visited the historic "Trail of Tears". I found this story fascinating and imagined how hard it must have been for the Indian women to be forced to be moved from their home.
There were many historical places of interest along this trail, and the significance of the Cherokee rose flower was explained.
I like all types of roses, but found the white flowers with the yellow centers to be very pretty. I saw these flowers growing along the trail and also along fences in residential neighborhoods.
During my visit to this state I also learned that the state bird of Georgia is the brown thrasher. This bird is almost a foot long and was also pointed out to me when we were visiting some of the historic places.
