Hiking through North Georgia

I love hiking with this group. Here we are recently at a little waterfalls at Black Mountain State Park. We may not go far but we have lots of fun and who knows: we may hike further and further as time goes on. We couldn't ask for a prettier view. Jim's way off in the [...]
