I love the fact that I can drive about 10 minutes and be at Walker Creek. Last Saturday, the river was so still. No dam releases by Georgia Power! So the river was like glass and we could paddle anywhere without a problem. This meant going down stream and back up stream easily. Love this [...]
This winter before the US Corp of Engineers began to release water over the dams in our northeast Georgia lakes, this was a normal scene: high water! This boat ramp and parking lot is one of the many near Toccoa. The ramp in this photo is totally under water. The walkway in the background also [...]
