Scenic Sunday: Chattooga River

The Chattooga River near Clayton, Georgia. April 30, 2011.

This is my post for the Scenic Sunday meme, which shares beautiful scenes from around the world.  To see more Scenic Sunday posts, or to join and show your own pictures, click HERE.

The Chattooga River is a National Wild and Scenic River which forms the boundary between South Carolina and Georgia.  There are national forests (Sumter and Chattahoochee) on both banks, which makes the river area attractive for hiking and wilderness activities.  The river is also one of the top whitewater destinations in the southeast.

The picture shows the Chattooga just above Bull Sluice, a Class V rapid on the river near Clayton, Georgia.
