Beautiful Day - Hiking to Duke Creek Falls

Today turned out to be a beautiful day in the North Georgia Mountains. We live in a wonderful area that has many choices in the hiking arena. I encourage anyone that lives near North Georgia to take a day trip and take advantage of them.

The trail going down to the falls was about a mile on a very easy path. At 60 degrees with the tree coverage and water nearby it was a little chilly.

After a good bit of rain over the past couple of week the falls were beautiful and full.

This was actually very interesting. Looks like the spindles were chewed by beavers. We had a lovely time in the beautiful sunshine and spending time together as a family. The added benefit was getting our daily exercise in such a wonderful setting.

Looks like it was just beautiful! We have a state park not too far from us that I love to walk through and explore - it has natural springs and such.
