Georgia On My Mind

Nathan, Yesenia & Natalie with JoyAnna, James and Lydia
Sometime between Thanksgiving and Christmas we spent a few days with our dear friends, The Menas. They graciously invited us to spend some of their vacation with them in the mountains of Georgia, and we very gladly accepted!

Jesus & Issel with Josh & Heather

They were renting an adorable cabin on Black Rock Mountain, very nearby The Foxfire Museum & Heritage Center. If you are ever in Northern Georgia, you should stop there and spent a few hours. You could easily spend a few hours simply talking to the people inside the museum shop, so you might as well just plan to spend the whole day. You'll be glad that you did! I've always been interested in the people of Appalachia, and this was such an amazing place to learn some of their history.

We also visited Tallulah Gorge. Josh brought me there on our honeymoon 8 years ago. It used to be a popular honeymoon location. Funny though, back in the day when newlyweds were flocking to the area, I don't believe bushwhacking was on their to-do list. Near death experiences probably weren't either. Granted, that was before there was life insurance policies.

Now, after I survived the hike down into the gorge, as well as the hike back out 8 years ago, I swore I would never do it again. That is a brutal feat. Especially for someone who is terrified of heights! By the time you are halfway down, your legs are jelly just from the physical exertion, not to mention the height, the shaking suspension bridge, and slippery steps. 

Miraculously, we all survived our hike. Even the children!

After all of that, can you believe they make you PAY for these???
