Quincy, FL (+Tallahassee)

Quincy is a town of just under 7,000 in the Florida Panhandle, about 20 miles W/NW of the capital city of Tallahassee.

It is the seat of Gadsden County, Florida's only majority African American county.

We've got to get there first... this was a drive from Montgomery, AL to Tampa, FL. Let's take a ride through the deep Deep South.

Rainy morning in southeastern Alabama




In Houston County, Alabama's southeast corner. It's beginning to look a bit Floridian.




Crossing into Seminole County, the southwestern-most in the state of Georgia

The tiny county seat of Donalsonville, pop. 2,700


Decatur County, Georgia






Bainbridge, GA - pop. 12,000












Into Quincy






That rainstorm from earlier in the day departing


Around Quincy's courthouse square








Gadsden County courthouse
























Into the capital city of Tallahassee






The Florida State capitol, 1970's version




The old 1845 capitol remains as a museum






Rotunda






The long, long, -- l o n g -- drive down around the crook of Florida towards Tampa. Driving into the state this way made it feel as vast and endless as Texas. It really is a huge state.


Beyond just visiting every state (I'm at 43) I decided a while ago that I want to hike in each state. This stroll through the woods in Perry County made Florida my 32nd state hiked in. I got my ass kicked by mosquitoes, so it was a mercifully brief hike.








Coincidentally, or perhaps not: the town of Cross City, FL. Keep on truckin'.

Nice pictures. That part of Florida looks like the regular South, which I guess isn't a surprise.

Nice pics. It's not everyday you see images of Quincy. I went to college in Tallahassee for five years and drove into Quincy only once to see what was there.

A regular backwater. This could easily be mistaken for Georgia or Alabama, but then so too can areas in Central Florida outside the major metropolitan cities.

Tallahassee is looking good.

Ha. I drove up there once also. Havana was nicer from what I remember.
On the trip back I took a turn down a clay dirt road and swore I went back in time 50 years. It was spooky.

Actually, the Okeefenokee is about 175 miles to the NE of Quincy.

Georgia / Florida border towns. South Georgia / North Florida is like a state of its own - not what one typically thinks of Georgia nor what one would typically thinks of Florida. Beautiful countryside with small towns, small cities, and bigger cities dotted along the way. I enjoy and love my visits there.
