This Week: Mountains West

On this week's episode of Georgia Traveler, it's off to Georgia's magnificent northwest mountains. Rome is our destination city, where we visit the point where the Oostanaula, Etowah, and Coosa rivers meet and see a famous statue at City Hall. We'll venture far north to the iconic landmark of Rock City Gardens at Lookout Mountain. David Zelski explores Barnsley Gardens in Adairsville and checks out the Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville. Gerald Bryant takes a ride on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, and Phil Proctor meets Colonel Poole at his Pig Hill Hall of Fame in Elijay.
