The two RV Gypsies drove past a very nice welcome to Pickens sign, but Karen was unable to photograph it through the moving car window, so she had to settle for the city limit sign.

Walking to the restaurant for lunch, Karen photographed a cute window design on a building. (note: the food at Coyote coffee was not very good. Plus it was served in a plastic basket covered with paper. Karen hates to eat off paper because when she cuts her food, she also cuts through the paper. Disgusting.

It was named after Andrew Pickens, an American revolutionary soldier and U.S. Congressman for South Carolina. Pickens was previously Cherokee Territory but the Cherokee surrendered the land during the American Revolutionary War. Its nickname is "Where The Mountains Begin"
