Canopy Road

 
Posted by Picasa


This sign is located at the turn off for Old Bainbridge Road headed into Tallahassee. It is a good idea to do as the sign says and go slow, not only because the road has some hills and curves with little or no shoulders, but it is also a beautiful drive and if you go slow, you can really enjoy all the beautiful trees growing alongside and over it forming the canopy. I posted another picture of Old Bainbridge Road a little further down from this sign here. Miccosukee Road is another canopy road in Tallahassee and you can see a picture of that road here.

This is a nice and peaceful road, but you need to drive safely, go quiet and leisurely enjoying the beautiful nature!
I liked your picture!

I like your interpretation of why to slow down, Lois. If we go slow enough we can also take photos whilst driving through - although maybe not too safe!

Not to mention the cops like to hide on this road!

I like your canopy road. I think they are like a tunnel. We went through one in Michigan that lasted for an hour or so. One constant tunnel.
