WEEK SIX: I LOVE OUR NATIONAL PARKS
In the past six weeks, I have visited five national parks, one national monument and at least six national forests. Last Sunday Peter and I purposely spent nine hours driving from our home base in North Georgia to Highlands, NC – a drive that normally requires less than three hours. It was an awesome day and I feel privileged to have such ready access to these beautiful and protected areas. And it was refreshing to see so many young families in those places. This image was made at Duke’s Creek Falls in the Chattahoochee National Forest, near Helen, GA. The falls are well worth the two-mile round trip hike from the Richard B. Russell Scenic Highway.
