Great Natural Beauty

Georgia’s Legend

The following legend adequately describes Georgia’s great natural beauty: When the God apportioned the earth to all the peoples of the world, the Georgians arrived late. The Lord asked them why they were tardy. The Georgians replied that they had stopped on the way to drink and raise their glasses in praise of Him. God was so pleased with their response that he gave the Georgians the part of the Earth that he had been reserving for himself. Georgia is confirming that this legend is indeed true: Georgia is a natural paradise.
