This is the Waller holler. My Great Grandmother’s house was situated in the little valley between the 2 roads in the middle of this photo. We traveled to Carthage, Tennessee every summer when I was growing up, and we usually stayed for two glorious weeks.
This photo is from my trek between Butler Cemetary and Beverly’s house in Lafayette, where I pulled over to check my directions. I can’t ﬁnd this on Google Maps, so if any of you know where this is, please let me know!
After getting stuck in rush hour trafﬁc, getting lost just west of Corona (looking for a restroom in an industrial area, oops!), and checking into our hotel in Irvine, we went to Laguna Beach for a long walk and some seafood.
You would never guess that there were about 439,751 people on the beach when I took this picture. It took us about an hour to ﬁnd a parking space, after being stuck in a trafﬁc jam trying to get to Balboa Beach.
On our recent trip to Los Angeles, Glenn and I stopped in Desert Center (pop. 125). On my drives from Phoenix to LA and back, I had passed this little green spot in the middle of nowhere and ﬁnally found the truth about the signs for Lake Tamarisk.
