A while back I walked beside the Tugaloo River Corridor and was surprised by the beauty and also the light that was on this area. Right now, I'm all about color and light! The river itself can be darker in the evenings, especially on the sides near the banks. This makes it super hard to [...]
I'm so grateful that Cocoa is still with me. She's 13 and showing her age, but she still loves to go wherever I go. On this walk, I was struck with a couple of unchanging facts about this dog: She really wants to be with me, and she doesn't really care if anyone else is [...]
We were able to paddle out from a friend's house on the back or head waters of Lake Hartwell. Really, this and the Tugaloo River is the very beginning of the Lake. Yesterday, the temperatures were warm enough but the wind was, once again, ruthless! It seems like every time we paddle, we are paddling [...]

Last Saturday, we drove up to High Shoals Falls and the trip was beautiful and uneventful until we started driving back to Toccoa. That is when I suggested taking a road that I had driven before. I wanted everyone to see where the Appalachian Trail crosses this section of road. The trouble was: I wasn't [...]
Here's Minnehaha Falls. It really is one of the prettiest little waterfalls in northeast Georgia. And it is an easy walk to the base of the falls. The only difficult thing is finding it. It's located on the backside of Lake Rabun. But I usually take Bear Gap Road to the small parking area. A [...]
