Anyway, my family has gone to Dahlonega for the annual Bear on the Square music and craft festival for the past four years. Mom and Dave set up their crafts (soap and blacksmithing) and I walk around and listen to the music. Yeah...I'm a real help. This year, I didn't get any pictures of the event at all, but I did get ones on the way home. Again, lots of help. We stopped at Amicalola Falls on the way home and that's where I got all the pictures. So, without further ado, prepare to spend the next 37 minutes of your life scrolling through pictures of a waterfall, and those viewing the waterfall. Oh, and the stairs. There are lots of stairs.
Oops...getting ahead of myself. Here's one Dave took (self-timer on the tailgate of the truck, actually) before we left the cabin. Left to right, Dad, Mom, Philip (10) Titus (13) me (23) and Dave (19) No, Titus isn't standing on anything...he just is that tall, somehow. Crazy.
We got out and walked around a bit at the base of the falls. Me and Mom...being us...
And here's where it comes into the pond...just a little right of the center...
I think I have my order of events wrong. We stopped at the base of the falls, as pictured above, and THEN drove to the top. That's actually how it went.
So, here's the view from the top!
And here's the view looking straight out...
So, we walked.
And we walked.
Annnnd then we walked.
And then we finally got the overlook...
And we looked over.
Texting a picture to someone...I forget who... ;)
Looking up at the over-look from under it... :)
We went on down and got some more pictures. I was playing with the shutter speed a lot and therefore took approx. 769 pictures, but you only get one here. It's about the only one worth keeping!
And then we walked back. Go ahead, laugh. Wow. It was rough. Titus was exhausted by the time we got to the top of the 175 step section! And we only had 425 left to go!
There was apparently something very fascinating on the side of this hill...
My toes, above raging waterfall.
And finally, just before leaving, we got to see some good ol' red GA clay. None of that here in KY!That and fire ants! I'm still getting over the fact that you don't have to be scared of ants here! The dirt doesn't stain and the ants don't bite. Almost sounds like a song!
Thanks for hanging around!
