After Amicalola Falls, we went to the Bigfoot Museum! A large permanant collection of genuine Bigfoot artifacts, life-sized dioramas, sighting maps, a theater and a room that is all Boggy Creek! LOL, the feces sample was “collected while steaming warm.”
The tallest waterfall in Georgia, 729′! This was my second time seeing these impressive, cascading falls and I will not soon forget it, my thighs were sore from those stairs for days afterwards! Hahaaa.
This is a mash-up of two visits to Georgia’s longest and (maybe?) most picturesque covered bridge. Like Cloudland, this is a spot I repeatedly end up in times of major self-doubt, confusion, loss, or heartbreak. Most recently, I made it out there in time to see a gloomy sunset and let my brain empty out […]
July 2017 Known as “The Happiest Place in Pennsylvania,” Randy Gilson’s Pittsburgh home and public landmark really is a mood-lifting rainbow. The courtyard is packed with recycled art treasure. It’s that rare type of art that succeeds at being for everyone while still feeling deeply special.
2020, 2018, 2016 A striking granite monument on a lonely hill in Elberton. I like to think of the Guidestones as my state’s own Doomsday Stonehenge, and it felt like a fine time to revisit them. I drove out into a clear, black-skied pre-dawn to catch the sunrise. As the light started to creep in, […]
It feels like fall is in its last gasp ahead of a gloomy winter. Even with the naked trees, it is a gorgeous (sorry-not-sorry) view walking the rim right after sunrise (I still haven’t made it down to the gorge floor, one day!).
October 3, 2020 Me n Jess in the land of the lost! I loved walking among these replicas. I am a ham, y’all.
Gibbs Garden is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Jessica and I first visited back in February to see millions of daffodils glowing in the sun. We revisited this past Saturday to see thousands of Japanese Maple trees, hundreds of varieties, at peak fall color change. It was a magical sight to see. […]
I have always wanted to climb Yonah, but after Blood Mountain, I was like, ‘Woof. Maybe I’m not ready for challenging hikes.’ Then election day came and Jen and I decided to drive up there. I would NOT have enjoyed taking this shit on solo! It is a very steep, boulder-filled forest trail, lots of […]
This week was TENSE. I’m relieved Trump was not re-elected but with some personal stuff going on, I found myself more confused and restless than usual. It’s a pandemic mood, but I really had to get the hell out of my house and peep some fall leaves. I’m glad I finally checked out the Sourwood […]
