Today’s Photo: Under the Bridge
I found this interesting shot where the Chattahoochee River flows under Main Street in downtown Helen, Georgia. I took this while walking around the day after hiking to Upper Desoto Falls.
I still haven’t figured out if this is a “thing” or if it is just kids playing in the water. However, I frequently find rocks stacked along rivers when I go hiking. I found this one on the trail to Indian Creek Falls. It reminds me of a few previous places I have visited, like Middle Creek Falls.
You can find some of the most interesting things if you get off the beaten path. I found this driving Highway 9 in Alabama. Obviously, it has been around a long time. Since 1893 according to the sign. You can only imagine the history for which this building has been present.
I try hard to find new places to go for July 4th. Last summer, I found myself in Florida at the Pier in front of Pier Park in Panama City Beach. I thought it was a pretty cool experience. There was a huge crowd, but it did not look that big since everyone was spread out on the beach.
I took the kids on a short day hike to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We chose to do a short out and back that covered Indian Creek Falls, Tom Branch Falls, and Juney Whank Falls. One of the easiest hikes with the greatest rewards that I have found. Not only do you get 3 waterfalls in 2ish miles, they are very beautiful. This is a shot I got of Indian Creek Falls. Oh, and the water was really cold.
I spent a couple hours walking through the National Infantry Museum at Fort Benning. It is a sobering experience walking through the hall of the museum and seeing the history of infantry in the United States. This shot is of the Infantryman statue that sits under the rotunda at the entrance to the museum.
