Tallulah Gorge in Snow

We were not the only visitors at Tallulah Gorge during the snow. Lots of people were there with cameras and there's a good reason. The snow actually stuck to the rock walls and the gorge was beautiful. After photographing Toccoa Falls for many years, you learn pretty fast that some snows just don't "stick." But [...]

Pinnacle Knob:The Abundant Path

The hike up to Pinnacle Knob was a good surprise. (See the directions at the end) We had heard that it was a nice hike and it was. Plus, it has some of the best views in northeast Georgia right behind those at Unico Gap and Mountain Crossings. After a quick check of the hiking [...]

Checking out Blood Mountain!

Drum Roll for the End of Summer and the Black Willow!

I used by Nikon water camera to take this photo from my kayak on Lake Hartwell, and I have no idea what the settings were! I just love the way the sunlight touched every inch of this tree. There's even water reflections on it's bark. They are just hard to see.  When I paddle the [...]
