A Weekend Outing - Tallulah Gorge

Inspired by others who can find such beautiful places to visit in their back yard, last weekend, the man and I took the children to the GA mountains to Tallulah Gorge. Tallulah Gorge is the deepest gorge this side of the Mississippi, which is neat. In 1970, Karl Wallenda walked a tightrope over the gorge which I guess was cool.

We didn't get to go into the state park and see the falls or walk on the suspension bridge, but we did get to see the gorge from above at a road side stop.
You can see the river running at the bottom. It was a beautiful, sunny and rather warm day, so of course, that means the girl needed her snow hat, which she wouldn't put on for love or money during the winter.
They enjoyed seeing the 'hole in the ground.' The boy was rather mystified that a hole could be that big. It was a long drive 1.5 hour drive there and then back for a 15 minute stop, but I was glad we took them. Hopefully we can do more things like this in the near future.
The morning comes early. Sweet gardening dreams.


  1. That is a beautiful picture Ribbit...I used to love taking our kids out to explore the woods...we used to camp for weeks at a it's time for the grandkids to have a turn : ) Btw...your kids are adorable : )

  2. Oh how fun. I can't wait to take Jonathan to places like this when he gets a bit older. Nothing like beautiful and some good exercise. Hopefully those little legs enjoyed the hike.

  3. Looks like a beautiful spot!

  4. Looks like fun! I love taking the kids to see places like this, we love to camp too, but I'm not sure if I'll be up to it this year with hubby deployed. I will have to make sure we do a few cool day trips like this into the mountains.
