Sharing history, making memories
We spent some time with friends in Lake Burton, Georgia recently. Since it was too cold to swim, we set out exploring the neighboring Moccasin Creek and Hemlock Falls area. I'm always in disbelief when I realize such beauty exists within day trip traveling time from where I live, and then I'm slightly disappointed that we don't spend more time discovering these places. The Hemlock Falls Trail was a little ambitious for a group of young kids, but the hike went on with very little complaints. The kids scavenged for the best walking sticks, used them as swords and shooters, and then discarded them when a better one came along the path. Fishing, bubbles, and waffles with friends and family all helped make this the perfect weekend adventure. The south with its mossy forests, mild winters, and slow living completely has my heart.
