Showing off the Peach State
My friend from New York and her kids visited Georgia for the first time. They liked it so much that they made sure to stop by again on their way back home. We visited a couple of my favorite North Georgia spots and even explored a new waterfall. It was incredibly hot, but that's Georgia. I wish we had more time together but we sure did make the most of it.
If you are going to go to the Mountains, the first stop should be Tallulah Gorge. This isn't terribly far from home. I wish we could have hiked the gorge floor but it was July 4th and the 100 daily passes were gone 20 minutes after the visitor center opened. #oneday
After walking up and down the 1000+ steps at the gorge we needed a break. What better place than my all time favorite "Goats on the Roof".
Look at that face! This is the reason why I believe these guys are the best four legged creatures on the planet. They kill me.
A GOTF first, we watched it literally rain down pee on a picnic table full of people from a goat on one of the ramps above. Luckily they had the umbrella up or it would have been disastrous.
After filling up on the biggest bowl of ice ream ever, not to mention a heck of show watching them make it, I got my future read by Pappy and we headed to the next stop.
Black Rock Mountain State Park.
We managed 2 overlooks and stopped in the visitor center before we moved on to the final leg of our Independence Day journey.
Our last stop was Minnehaha Falls. I had never been there before. It is a bit of a hidden spot on Lake Burton but a super easy hike. Arguably the prettiest falls in the area. I will be back again.
