Amicalola Falls to Hiawassee, GA: mile 0-69.6

The archway at the start of the Amicalola Falls approach trial

Hey all, sorry for the delay; it turns out AT&T doesn’t want Georgia mountain folk to communicate. It’s been tough getting enough signal to post.  But alas we’re back in civilization (Hiawassee, GA) for a night of relaxing, eating and showering!  

Then it’s back on the trail tomorrow. 

In the mean time here are some photos we’ve taken so far…hope you enjoy!!
