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 [...]

My Rabun Bald Hike!

There has been so much rain this winter that our mantra has become: When the sun is out, you hike! And the sun was out on Saturday. Hiking to the top of Rabun Bald (4,696) was on tap. This is just a moderate—nothing too hard or difficult—hike. Rabun Bald is the second-highest peak in Georgia. [...]

The historic Stumphouse Tunnel is also located in the park, so you can visit both places [...]

Sunday in the Country

On this Sunday, we decided to stay close to home and take Chip to see CeCe. While she was super sweet, he lost his brains and barked at her. Poor CeCe; she had to settle for us petting her through the fence. She's grown and still beautiful—just so much bigger! The babies watched us from [...]
