North Georgia

Since Michelle has gotten a bit older, we have been trying to visit North Georgia for short to medium hikes on a fairly regular basis. Another reason to drive there is my G35 and the curvy roads. For example, we have driven the Snake Run (if that link isn’t working, try this) multiple times. It is a lot of fun.

Here are some photographs taken over the last few months.

These images are from De Soto Falls Trail.

Brasstown Bald is the highest peak in Georgia at 4,784 feet (1,458 m).

Dukes Creek Falls Trail is close to Helen, GA.

Anna Ruby Falls are a set of double falls in the same area.

Red Top Mountain State Park is not really a mountain or even a hill. But it is not too far from home and a good relaxing hike (an easy 5.5 miles) with views of Allatoona Lake.

As the weather has been mild here recently, we might head north again one of these weekends.

  1. Aisha:

    You’re a Georgian

    Atlantan to be more specific and to avoid confusion with these guys.

    Anna Ruby falls it looks lovely.

    Worth a visit, but the prettiest falls in Georgia are in Cloudland Canyon.

    Renee: Georgia has some nice places. I have been to the mountainous north a lot but still need to explore the coast. Might do it this spring.

  2. The coastal area sounds nice too. I’ve been wanting to go to Brunswick and that area… Love Tybee Island and that whole area too. I need to get Little Dude used to long trips before it’s too late…
