As I drove West on highway 90 through Chattahoochee, I was wondering how far I wanted to go. I saw the vista of the Apalachicola River as I drove out of town and I stopped at a Burger King to get out and take pictures. I kept walking--on the gravel first then the grass. I took the pictures but I still hadn't decided whether to push on across the River and deeper into the Panhandle. I wasn't sure I was even right to be going into this town. I couldn't remember if it was in the Walkin' Notes or not. So, I turned around and started back up the hill, planning to get back in the car and go back to Tally.
Then I saw this sign. I knew I was in the right place. I drove up the hill, parked near City Hall, and got out to explore. I felt a whole lot better. The sign spooked me a bit.
Chiles found an arrowhead on the ground just before he got to Chattahoochee:
Yesterday, as I was walking, I looked down and found an arrowhead, and when I found that arrowhead, I knew that I had to be on the right track. After all, if the Indians have come along here, then I must be on the right track. I also found 2 horseshoes and then came to Victory Bridge just outside Chattahoochee. So I know we are getting closer to victory.
Chattahoochee is thought to come from the Creek word for "painted rock."
