The night before, we planned our drive from Asheville, North Carolina south into Georgia. Driving five hours or so south through the Smokey Mountains would put us in Cartersville, a county seat.
This was the essence of moseying, not knowing where we’d drive from one day to the next except for the most general direction.
Once we picked Cartersville, we were delighted to discover that the Etowah Indian Mounds were just south of town. Indian mounds can be found in many places, but this is the most intact Mississippian culture site in the Southeast. We climbed 132 steps to the top of the largest mound. We could see for miles!
