We went on a brief vacation this past weekend to the north Georgia mountains. This is the off season, so there were very few people around, even on the trails. I enjoy hiking, but our girls are still young and haven’t yet captured the spirit of it all. Or maybe it’s simply a matter of having shorter legs. They have to take three steps for each one of mine, so whenever we set out they tire quickly. They love the outdoors, however, so I’m hoping that as they grow older, they’ll be more willing to tackle even longer hikes.
The highlight of the trip was a brief hike to Toccoa Falls, which is located on the campus of Toccoa Falls College, a small, liberal-arts Christian college in—you guessed it—Toccoa Falls, Georgia.
The waterfall has a 186 feet drop, which is huge, but it’s not even the largest in Georgia.
You really can’t get a sense of how high this waterfall is until you spot my family there at the bottom. Such a huge drop.
Also, you can’t see from the photo, but there was a large pool at the bottom. Very picturesque. Oh, and the lovely rainbow from the mist, which ends at my family, making them my own little pot of gold.
