My daughter and I visited North Georgia yesterday to view the gorgeous fall colors at Amicalola Falls State Park near Ellijay. Amicalola is a Cherokee Indian word meaning “tumbling waters". Here Smokey Bear reminds everyone to be careful with fires. Parts of our state are under extreme drought conditions.
It's easy to see why this is one of Georgia's most popular state parks.
This is the 8.5 mile approach trail that leads from the park to Springer Mountain. Springer Mountain is the beginning of the the 2,135 mile Appalachian Trail which ends in Maine.
The waterfalls are the tallest cascading waterfall (729 feet) east of the Mississippi river.
I thought these two little cars were cute and fit right in with the fall colors.
I'm participating in the Fall Color Project at Dave's Garden. If you'd like to visit him and view other fall pictures click HERE.
