North Georgia is so pretty. Above are photographs from our trip to the Chattahoochee National Forest where we took a short hike to see the Anna Ruby Falls. Breathtaking for sure. Surprisingly it wasn’t as cold as I anticipated, given the fact that there were some melting icicles and some snow still left on the ground.
That forest was quite enchanting. They called it a Cove Forest // for its tall trees on the mountain side and its rich soil. Because the light only hits the ground for a short period of time during the day the earth stays moist creating a great habitat for a variety of plants (like moss and ferns) and animals. Not to mention the creeks that run through it and the underground water that surfaces. It was truly I site to see. I’d imagine that in the spring and summer time it would be even prettier and greener! Those falls were bigger than I expected! It definitely did not disappoint.
We came to Helen, Georgia last minute for our ten year anniversary… The town is cute…but the mountains and land around it is my favorite! Especially the creeks and rivers! Our hotel sits on the Chattahoochee River which is most magical to me! We have a balcony that looks out to the river…which is why I wanted to stay here. Anyways…we have more exploring to do!!! Will post some more from today in my next post!
Love & Moonlight,
PS. Ava insisted we visit the Old Sautee Store to try their Farmers Cheese and crackers….and the ginger cookies! CHECK!
