October Mountain Trip 2014

by Jess Brown

Every year my family and extended family and friends take a trip up to the North Georgia Mountains. I thought I'd share some photos from our trip. The weather was beautiful!

Helton Creek Falls

Helton Creek is back a ways off Hwy 129 and it takes a little while to get to, but the ride is really nice. It's not much of a hike (just a few stairs) but worth the trip.


Drive through a few streams to get there!

You can see the falls from the road.

You have to hold on to this guy to keep him out of the water!

Sorghum Festival

Hiking around Vogel State Park

Vogel is one of my favorite parks in Georgia. There's a lot of great hiking leaving from the park.

Lots of demos on soap making, blacksmithing, broom making, moonshine, and even a real sawmill...
