... famed Amicalola Falls - 3rd highest in the USA and the start/end of the Appalachian Trail. And then hiked from the visitor center to the falls and back on two different trials. Maybe 3 miles or 1/1,000th of the famed Trail. Like spending 10 minutes at the Grand Canyon!
And then we discovered the boutique town of Blue Ridge where the new money from Atlanta hangs out over weekends and holidays. Great shopping and the ...
