• Roads Less Traveled: The Falls Part 1

    0

    Waterfalls have always held a special place in my heart when it comes to outdoor adventures. Living in northern Georgia offers no shortage of these natural phenomena, carved out of hard granite and quartz over thousands of years. This area offers a variety of different types of waterfalls with different levels of accessibility. Late spring […]

    0

    Brasstown Bald is the highest point in the state of Georgia. It’s elevation of 4,784ft is some 88ft higher than Rabun Bald (the 2nd highest point) and is one of just a few mountains in Georgia with a 360º view.

  • Roads Less Traveled: Somethin’ ’bout Snow

    0

    As children, we were often fascinated by snow. The search for the ever-evading snow day kept us excited through the cold winter season, and at times we drove our teachers insane as we asked incessantly in our grade school years if we would have school the next day. By adulthood, many of us grew out […]

  • Roads Less Traveled: Preacher’s Rock

    Located roughly 1.5 miles from Woody Gap up the great Appalachian Trail (AT) lies an exposed rock with an incredible view. This rock goes by many names but most of the locals know it as “Preacher’s Rock”. It overlooks the valley that runs below Big Cedar Mountain towards the east/southeast. It is a fairly highly […]

    0

    As I step outside and glance up, I see a blanket of mares tails and high, thin cirrus clouds floating overhead. With that, I grab my camera and jump in my car for the 3 minute trip towards my go-to sunset watching spot. The aptly named Sunset Drive is located on the campus of the […]
