In a small town called Monticello about 20 miles East of Tallahassee, there is a street called Dogwood. As it goes out of town it becomes gravely and grassy. The tree canopy's shade cools you down. On the map of Historic Monticello provided by the Chamber of Commerce, this trail is called the "Avenue of the Oaks." It's quite a sight, and as Chiles mentions in his Walkin' Notes, it's a small piece of Virginia in Florida.
