Back on the Trail

Next stops on the Chiles Trail are Crestview, Bonifay, Chipley, DeFuniak Springs, and Ponce de Leon. I've been reading this great travel guide by Jan Annino Godown called Scenic Driving Florida (The Globe Pequot Press, 2005).

For the Panhandle it's got some awesome drives:

"The Canopy Roads"; Pisgah Church Road to Lake Miccosukee to Monticello

"Red Hills at the Roof of the State"; Havana to Thomasville to Tallahassee

"Mysteries of Strange Waters"; Wakulla Springs State Park to St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge

I'm looking forward to using the book for DeFuniak Springs since it's got a guide to the Victorian-era homes in that town that Chiles loved.
