On a Friday in Atlanta on business I had a couple of hours before I needed to get to the airport so I decided to do a little sightseeing a take a few pictures. I had passed by the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum a few times on the way to dinners, so I knew exactly where it was at. It is only about 2 miles from downtown Atlanta, but in a very nice park like setting.

Although I didn't get a chance to go into the library or museum due to time limitations I did walk into the building to get the look and feel. I then walked around the entire grounds and took a couple of pictures which you can see here.
