We hiked the Edmonds Trail

  The 7.2-mile James E. Edmonds Backcountry Trail, named in honor of one of the park’s first rangers, is a quite steep trail. It was a lot more exciting than the Tennessee Rock Trail which is much shorter. When I looked up the elevation gain for the James Edmonds trail, the graph looked like rick-rack! [...]

A Promise Kept

Click on images to enlarge A few weeks ago, I got us caught in a horrendous thunderstorm complete with thunder, lightening, and hail. I had never been as wet as I was that day! And the hail hurt!! We were out in the middle of a forest with no place to shelter. My [...]

Warwoman Dell to Martin Creek Falls!

Rumor has it that North Carolina is open! But I am so glad that I have had this time to hike some pretty amazing trails right here in northeast Georgia! The trail to Martin Creek Falls is one of then. It begins at Warwoman Dell just off of Warwoman Road in nearby Rabun County. It's [...]

We started our hike to Panther Falls and Angel Falls in a little bit of a fern glade. This is a two-mile trail that's really a nice short hike with a few ups but mostly one that is full of really beautiful views. The trail begins near historic Lakemont and nearby Lake Rabun Beach Campground [...]

Fun with an ND Filter at Anna Ruby Falls

I'm still trying to learn how to use with my ND filter. And from the weather forecast, it looks like I'll have plenty of chances over the next few days with more clouds and rain heading our way. This is when you should use these filters with the greatest success—with overcast skies. But even though [...]
