Georgia Back Roads: Watson Mill

Watson Mill Bridge is one of my favorite places for a Sunday afternoon drive. It's also one of the most picturesque parks in Georgia. This time I headed to the bridge during the middle of the week. I had a new wide angle lens and knew this would be the perfect place to explore with [...]

Why I hike . . . because I can’t stop!

On top of Yonah Mountain in Georgia. Before I was diagnosed with cancer, I had this really crazy dream where I was running—not running away from something but running toward something—fast. I wasn't just running; I was competing. I was an elite athlete—strong, sure footed, and brave. Then came my cancer diagnosis and operation. I [...]

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 [...]

Perfect for a Sunday Afternoon!

Here's a perfect Sunday afternoon walk—not a hike—but a visit to the Chenocetah lookout tower. This evening the sunlight (golden hour) was perfect for my little Sony A6000 camera. Lake Russell is seen in the distance of this photo. This is an easy Google to get the directions. Hint: The tower is located on Chenocetah [...]

Staying in Place along the Tugaloo River

Spring greens were everywhere a couple of weeks ago along the Tugaloo River. In our attempt to get outside but also social distance, we stayed close to home. This is a little hidden hike of about three miles round trip. We made it longer by crossing a river and then walking out through a wetland [...]
