    My wife and I stayed at Riverbend Motel & Cabins for a week while we explored the area looking for waterfalls. We had a very nice stay. The rooms were nice. Nothing luxurious, but they were clean, had comfortable beds, and decent showers. The staff at the front desk were very friendly and helpful when we had questions, and even remembered our names over the week we stayed there. They don't provide a real breakfast, but had coffee and pastries every morning. Given the low price, the location of the motel is great. It's right in "downtown" Helen, so all the shops and restaurants are within easy walking distance. We visited in March during the off-season. I imagine during peak tourist season, driving in Helen would be awful, so being able to leave the car at the motel and walk everyone in town is great. As the name suggests, the motel is right at a bend in the Chattahoochee River and is very scenic. They have swings right along the river and we saw people fishing in the river as well. Overall, we had a great stay and would stay here again the next time we visit Helen.

    Building up the miles

    ... br> 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 resupply. I still have so much food that I really didn't need to get more, but I picked up some honey buns for breakfasts and some more candy bars for snacking.

    Today we're taking a nero ...

    Up and Down, Up and Down

    ... as much as we thought it would, it's still been nice to rest and get some laundry done. I bought a new, larger tarp for my hammock and sent my old one home. Tomorrow we have an early morning shuttle lined up to the same gap and plan on hiking another 13 miles. Thankfully the terrain seems like it will be pretty good, no huge changes in elevation, just the normal ups and downs.

    Woke up to another dreary day but it was warm. Biggest climb of the day was Blood Mountain. It went up about 1,000 feet but it wasn't too terrible going up, but going down was a different story. The climb down into Neels Gap was full of slippery rocks that made me lose my footing a couple of times. I planned on hiking past Neels Gap, but there is ...

    Just getting away from it all.
