I'm up in Georgia visiting my family for Thanksgiving and I had the pleasure of going to one of my favorite spots in the state, Amicalola Falls State Park in Dawsonville, GA. The falls are about a little over an hour north of Atlanta and the area is famous for being the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail. The falls reach 729 feet, which makes it the tallest cascading waterfall in the Southeast. Weather was in the 40s which made for an absolutely beautiful Fall day.

Despite Smokey the Bear's caution we chose to take our chances.
