Autumn Colors at Amicalola Falls State Park

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.

Beautiful colors and pictures.
I like the mosaic ones. Cool.

Such a lovely series for autumn Dot! Do those cars fall from the trees there ~ I'd take one! I am sorry it is so dry there. This was our first summer in a long time without fire warnings. I hope you get some rain soon.

Dave said...

Very nice colors Dot! I'm glad you joined in the project. We used to live in the TN side of the Smokies near Townsend. Those areas that connect with the Appalachian Trail are gorgeous this time of year!

Deborah Wilson said...

Good pics, colors, Dot. I love water falls. Here's a bit: Native Americans believe that sleeping beside water falls will bring prophetic dreams.

Some really nice colors down there. It is nowhere near that pretty up here.

Susan said...

Hey, this looks familiar! So glad you got to come up to the mountains for fall colors and apples. You really captured the colors well in your beautiful pictures.

D said...

Very beautiful. We LOVE this place. We found it by accident a few years ago on a rambling road trip. Now we try to get back every year, usually after Christmas. Wish we could be there for the leaves! Thanks for sharing the pictures.

Neal said...

Beautiful Dot! I just love fall!

By the way, congratulations on getting to listen to the politicians for a while longer. I understand you get to go thru another election. :)

Hi Dot, thanks for all the beautiful fall foliage photos. (great alliteration don't you think?) I've been licking my wounds. Pappy

Judy said...

Your fall is so beautiful Dot. I hope that the drought doesn't cause any problems. The cars are an added touch, nice.

Gorgeous fall colors this year! We loved Amicalola Falls when we were there 22 years ago!

nancybond said...

What beautiful color and landscape! Love the covered bridge -- and those two cars in the last photo are a perfect compliment to the color around them. You'd almost think they were parked there on purpose. :)

Aileni said...

What can I say - utterly stunning !

fishing guy said...

Dot: What a beautiful Fall show you have put up today with this neat park. I love the waterfall.

Skeeter said...

Ah, so this is the park with the big waterfall...
We have been to Tallulah falls and usually hang in that area looking for fall colors. Now I know to go a bit west to Amicalola next year! I am sure we have missed it this year so will not shoot for a visit. We plan to get to Mistletoe State Park this weekend to check out our colors. The colors by the Savannah River yesterday were awesome! More reds and oranges then I have seen in our 8 years living in Georgia...

Great pictures you snapped and I need to find a tree dropping those cars!

Lilli & Nevada said...

Hi Dot,
Came over here 3 times yesterday and your photos wouldn't download all the way, so not sure if it was a blogger fault or mine, but anyway your photos are just lovely, they are so full of color, and i love the collage

Denise said...

An incredible display of photos. What a beautiful place to visit. Thank you for sharing them.

tina said...

I agree, very beautiful and the two little sports cars fit in perfectly! I like it that you change the song to fit the post. Very, very nice.

Helen said...

Beautiful fall colors :)

Rose said...

Oh, Dot, you sure caught the beauty! I just cannot seem to take all the fall pictures I want.

I like every single one you show, and like you said, even those two little cars fit right in.

PERBS said...

Beautiful! I think I have seen the entrance there before because I thought I saw a bench and you said it wasn't a bench. . . Ü I love seeing the waterfalls!

April said...

Beautiful fall colors and gorgeous images! I like the stone archway and waterfalls - this is a very pretty place.

Gail said...

Dot, What fantastic color! Talk about your golden leaves against a blue sky! We are going to have to travel to this park sometime! Gail

Carletta said...

All of these are gorgeous as always Dot but I loved the falls!
And, those two little sport cars were a great capture for your fall shots - clever.

Paz said...

Ohhh! Ahhh! I love these Autumn colors.

I have an award for you on my blog. Please stop by to pick it up when you get a chance.

My oh my, these pictures are really gorgeous! The last time we were in Georgia, I only remember pine trees. I guess I never thought of the South having fall colors.

AVCR8TEUR said...

Those are some beautiful colored leaves. Glad to see Smokey on the job to remind visitors about the fire danger. Have a nice weekend!

Malyss said...

A place with an Indian name;Wonderful Pictures of an indian summer..
We have the same problem here, I mean, about the fire.Every year, lots of surface are burning, only because some people don't realize how dangerous it is to light a fire in such places.Curiously, we also use the picture of a bear on panels, when there are no bears anymore since centuries around here..

I love Amicalola Falls. The first time I visited there was in the 70's when my husband and I were dating. We went back several times taking our daughters. We took our grandson summer of '06. He loved it. Lots of steps to climb to get to the top but worth every step. Glad you and your daughter got to spend time together.

Kostas said...

Amazing photos, with marvellus autumnals colors!
Great post!

The Texican said...

Hi Dot, Thanks for dropping by today. I couldn't tell if that was a message you wanted posted, or if you had reservations. E-mail me at pappy1@rgv.rr.com

I'd be happy to post it, but I'll await your input. Pappy

Alan said...

Catching up on blogs I have missed lately - these are great shots. I'll have to make a point of visiting at some point. Love the waterfall and covered bridge.
