Thanks to Jen’s Wander Guide, we were able to find these two falls less than five minutes from Minnehaha. These directions are so precise, even a lost-prone freak like myself couldn’t have messed them up. Bad Branch came first. It’s a partially man-made falls, at the site of an old quarry which is kinda cool […]
This waterfall is like a wedding cake in nature- sweet, luminous, multi-tiered. Dipped my feet in that COLD water and clumsily climbed up the right side, then VERY clumsily scuttled up the steep path on the left to the top of the falls. It’s right on Lake Rabun so you have a pretty views on […]
A haunting circle of monkey statues live in the forest at the Autrey Mill Nature Preserve. The story is that a circus train crashed, sending dozens of escaped monkeys into the woods. The local farmers had never seen monkeys before, and shot them all. I can’t find anything to say this is 100% factual but […]
One of my 2020 blessings is getting to go on TWO separate sunrise hikes with my TWO separate Jessicas. Dawn is my favorite time of day- especially in the fug of a Georgia summer, when the late-afternoon heat can really wilt you. But I know morning people like me are freaks and it is truly […]
Sunday was my first time going down the Broad River, my first White Claw of the summer, and my first time NOT flipping out of a kayak and eating shit! Hahaaa. I saw so many turtles sunning on the rocks and sand! I didn’t want my phone to get wet so I took my lil […]
A sweet tweet that popped up in my feed recently: “Ever wish that fireworks were incredibly quiet and also didn’t disappear so quickly and also you could keep them in your home and also you could hold them in your hands?? Because, if so, I’d love to introduce you to Flowers.” Hahaaa! NO DOUBT. Jess […]
Jess and I went to pick up some peaches but I’m so obsessed with them, I’m going to give them their own post. On the way home we drove by these rays of sunshine. it was SO NICE. Thankful for a friend who is always down to stop for flowers.
Wowwowwow. Blueberries plucked from the bush are so much richer and jammier and more delicious than the berries you buy in the grocery store. We went to Damn Good Dawg Farms in Watkinsville. The Saharan dust cloud had turned the sky a dusty gray that looked very strange above us. It didn’t look like a […]
June 20, 2020 To honor the end of spring and first day of summer, we headed to Currahee to catch the sunrise. I’ve been lucky to catch the sunrise here three times now- each time has been different and wonderful. Our walk started in the dark, under a blanket of crisp stars. Over the hour, […]
Thank you, Alonzo Auto Parts & Wrecker Service and Crispy Printz for this fence of painted buses. It is an art oasis and I’m excited to see how it evolves next year.
