Chiles and His Florida: Holmes County

I'll be sketching Ponce de Leon and Bonifay--the county seat--but first I thought I would post some pictures of Holmes County I took just after I crossed the western county line. I couldn't help but stop and check my glasses to make sure I was seeing highlands as I approached Ponce de Leon. The hills reach their highest point in nearby Walton County on Britton Hill (345 feet above sea level). Here on Florida's roof, whether walking or driving, you know you're looking down on the mansions and skyscrapers of Tampa, Orlando, and Miami.

Holmes County, Florida.

Hi! My name is Pedro Marfil and I write you from Spain. I'm looking for information about the Florida gubernational elections, because I'm working about politic. I was looking for maps with the resoults of 1998 gubernational election and I found your blog. I can see you don't write on it since last year but I wonder to know if you can help me to find that kind of map. That's my blog, please write a comment and I will put on contact with you. Thank you very much.
