Little Wesser Falls

Today’s Photo: Little Wesser Falls

I spent many of my growing years kayaking the various rivers across North Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina and various other places.  One of the coldest rivers that I have ever paddled was the Nantahala River in North Carolina.  The biggest waterfall that most boaters run on the Nantahala River is Little Wesser Falls, or Nantahala Falls.  I probably spent as much time below water here as I did above water.

Garden Lights Path

I am so excited, it is the start of Christmas Lights season.  No, this is not from this year.  However, I can’t wait to make some memories of lights this year.  This is from the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, Garden Lights display a couple years ago.  I think my favorite from the gardens that time was the couple Admiring the Tree.

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.

The Stacked Rocks

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.

Barfield General Store

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.

Upper Desoto Falls

This was a short, not too hard hike.  I was able to make it to Upper Desoto Falls and Lower Desoto Falls.  This was after running by Helton Creek Falls.

Pier Park Fireworks

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.

Indian Creek Falls

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.

Roman Fountain

I had a couple hours to burn in downtown Rome Georgia.  I ran across this fountain in the side of one of the buildings.  The lights were just right to get a good view of the relief carved into the wall behind the fountain.
