|Here is the little bumpy, unpaved road we were on --on that foggy morning!!!|
The one I will share with you today was the first one we saw on Valentine's morning. They had predicted snow and ice --and we were afraid that we'd just be stuck all day in the motel... BUT--luckily, as is usually the case, they missed the forecast and we only saw snow at the higher elevations.. This time, I said "Thank Goodness"... ha
We drove near Helen, Georgia (in White County) to see a group of waterfalls in the Chattahoochee Wildlife Management Area (near the Unicoi State Park). We took Forest Road 44 (called the Chattahoochee River Road) deep into the mountains...
We happened upon our first waterfall not too far into the mountains. According to our Georgia information, this one is called the "Upper Spoilcane Creek Falls"... It is near Unicoi Gap State Park. We were at about 3100 feet in elevation at this level---so we enjoyed seeing some snow and ice here.
One really good thing about hiking in weather like this (32 degrees, snow, fog, drizzles, etc.), we had the entire mountain to ourselves.. We drove over 8 miles in and out of that mountain --and never EVER saw one other person nor vehicle!!!!! It was TREMENDOUS--just like we love it. It was OUR kind of trip, and the mountains were ALL ours!!!!
Hope you enjoy today's pictures. Be sure to click on them to enlarge them.
