Canoeing Lake Burton

Greg and I got up early this morning and headed to one of our favorite spots – Moccasin Creek State Park on Lake Burton. We got out on the lake about 9am and spent the morning canoeing. It was a beautiful day. Afterwards, we made hotdogs and read by the lake, enjoying the cool weather.


Byron Herbert Reece and Appalachian Trail


Several weeks ago (July 31 actually), Greg and I went hiking (surprise!). We returned to the Byron Herbert Reece Trail located on Blood Mountain. This time, however, we took a different turn when we met up with a crossroads along the trail and hiked a bit of the Appalachian Trail. Most of these pictures come from that portion of the trail. It was a gorgeous, magical day–one of those rare days in mid-summer in North Georgia where the humidity is ultra low and the temperature is just right.

It’s taken a while for me to post these pictures. Normally, I don’t post out of order. However, I was quite behind and it was that next weekend when Greg and I were attacked by hornets on a trail, and I decided to supersede the order and post about our experience/warning.
