Climbing again

“I’ve learned that everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you’re climbing it.”

This weekend I earned the second "badge" for the Canyon Climbers Club. Rob and I headed out to Amicalola Falls State Park Saturday morning, in order to enjoy a beautiful autumn day in the woods. We hiked every trail in the park, even climbing the 604 stairs to the top of the tallest waterfall east of the Mississippi River. Rob and I agree, although the adventure at Tallulah Gorge was awesome, the views at Amicalola were even better. The trails at Amicalola connect to the southernmost point of the Appalachian Trail. And, although we didn't venture that way this time--we spent our hike, wondering what it would be like to isolate ourselves on the trail for months at a time.
