The Wednesday trip to Callaway Gardens was my reason for coming to the reunion early in the week, rather than just for the weekend. While we were at Callaway Gardens, there was another group skeet shooting at the nearby range. Callaway Gardens is located on Georgia Hwy 18 in Pine Mountain, GA.  

We were met at the Discovery Center by our guide Ann Fischer.  Ann is a Docent at the Garden.  Following a brief history of the Gardens and Discovery Center, it was off to the Day Butterfly Center.  Here are some photos taken at the Butterfly Center.

The two groups joined up for lunch at the Callaway General Store.  Be sure to try the Muscadine (a local grape variety) preserves. After lunch some of us continued to Warm Springs, GA to FDR's "Little White House".
