Lost in Owl Swamp!

When you enter Owl Swamp and see how really intensely beautiful this area is, you forget all about the directions you were given earlier. Should you immediately paddle under the concrete bridge and turn right or go straight. We decided to go straight and we got lost in Owl Swamp but it was beautiful and [...]

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 [...]

Minnehaha Falls and No Disappointment

What to say about this photo and the one below? A neutral density filter—and the desire to make the water milky white! I'm learning and my new goal is to figure out how to use this new filter, which I have tried here. For most of my life, I have used a camera to record [...]
