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 [...]

Hiking to Cedar Falls: A Good Escape

Rewind: Wayah Bald

So, to continue a month or rather summer of anniversaries, we recently returned to Wayah Bald. As we were easily walking up the pathway that was home to bunnies and wild flowers, I remembered that this was the first place I walked/hiked after chemo. We were here on June 18, 2018! I also remembered how [...]
