Florida - July 30, 2005

The ride mainly across I-10 through the Florida panhandle. The only diversion was for a quick pass through Calhoun and Liberty counties, with Liberty being the last of Florida's counties that I needed to visit to complete the state. In addition to the usual roads and scenes, there's quite a bit of evidence of Hurricane Ivan damage in the Pensacola area.
