I’ve been to Howard Finster’s Paradise Garden a few times now and every visit is special. This time, we stayed at the bungalow right on the property– which gives you unlimited access to the garden since it’s right in the backyard. Listened to Elvis at the chapel under a full moon, ate VERY WELL, I […]
Quick stop back at the Rock Garden, giants stomping around Lilliput.
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 […]

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. […]
