    Yet another instance of great friends starts my time at the lake. Upon hearing of my plans for this southern journey, Miss Heather Smith immediately rolled out that southern hospitality and invited me to stay at her family's lake house up at Lake Burton in Northeastern Georgia and enjoy some solitude. Thank you Heather! My few days here at Lake Burton, right up in the Chatahoochie National Forest, have been filled ...

    ... rather than three, but I was definitely much more tired that day. My legs got more sore and tired earlier everytime I went uphill and I was going slower than normal. It wasn't a very pleasant day, but we made it and got to sleep indoors.

    The hostel offers free shuttles into nearby Hiawassee, GA, so after dropping out stuff off we headed into town for dinner. We ate at a country buffet where I ate an inappropriate amount of food, then headed down to the grocery store to ...

    ... it our base camp for a few days. Forest Hills Resort, 13 miles out of town is a large farm with individual log cabins that can be rented. Ours featured a hot tub, fire place, wrap-around porch and beautiful views of mountain forest. Horse riding, wagon trails and a intimate chapel are all perks of Forest Hills but we opted for the hiking trials instead. Breakfast is included but dinners can be reserved. Well worth saving ...
