Betsy and I wanted to visit a couple of waterfalls in northern Georgia on our way to the beach last month. We had been to the area is February, so we had a good idea how to get to the falls we wanted to see. Unfortunately the Forest Service road we needed to take into the mountains was closed, so we had to go to Plan B.
We found an alternate road to one of the waterfalls we wanted to see, and this route would also let us see a couple of ‘bonus’ falls along the way. Our alternate route took us into the mountains along the Chattahoochee River, which has its headwaters near the waterfall we wanted to see.
As we drove deeper in to the mountains, we found a pullover where we could stop and go down to the river. The picture above shows Betsy on the bank of the Chattahoochee.
Here’s another view of the Chattahoochee that Betsy took. I’m not sure where the old man came from, but he popped up in quite a few pictures that Betsy took on this trip.
The Chattahoochee wasn’t very wide or very deep at this location, but it was running freely and the water was crystal clear. It’s a beautiful stream.
