Yellow River Park, Snellville, Georgia

The Yellow River meanders more or less north-south through Gwinnett County.  According to my map book, it begins in the a few miles
south of Old Peachtree Road, east of Highway 20, and west of Hwy 124, and crosses (just barely) Azalea Drive..  This is north of the city
of Lawrenceville, and north west of Dacula.  It turns, and continues to flow southwest, missing the City of Lawrenceville by several miles.   Then, it turns and begins to flow east of the town of Lilburn.  It only widens south of Lester Road.   It passes Centerville, and flows through
a corner of DeKalb County and into Rockdale County.

The Yellow River Park, just south of Annistown Road, is  a beautiful spot.   I can imagine that it looked very much like this hundreds of
years ago.  Believe it or not, the top photographs were taken in early and late April, 2004.  It's amazing how fast spring arrives in Atlanta!
