I can’t say that Lake Yonah is my favorite lake, but it is close to my favorite. The truth is all the lakes in northeast Georgia are in a tie for number one. But this is certainly one of the sweetest lakes in the area. The “seed” lakes are all in a chain and feed into one another. Lake Seed, Lake Burton, Lake Rabun, Lake Tugalo, and Lake Yonah are Georgia Power lakes and they are deep. No kidding.
Above is the little cove that we paddle out of on Lake Yonah. I always love paddling through this area and always hate to paddle back because it signals that the trip is over.
At one point, this little house was the Post Office for the entire lake. Years ago, there were no roads around Lake Yonah. All the houses were built from materials that could be carried in by barge. There is still not a complete road around the lake. It is pure isolation in some spots!
Here’s Anne and it is probably at this point that I began asking what we were going to do about dinner!
