Leaf Peepers

We took our annual fall trip to the North Georgia Mountains on Saturday. It’s been a hectic month so we made our trip a couple weeks later than usual, but it made for even more colorful foliage and fantastic landscapes.

This Saturday was no exception and started off equally as hectic. First I had to meet my teammates for the Atlanta Marathon Relay to pick up our registration packets and discuss our game plan for the following day. Then we had to stop by and help our (transient pilot) friend move some furniture out of his current crashpad, since he's moving yet again.

We didn’t get to our intended destination until almost 4:30, so we had to get moving if we wanted to make it to the top of Amicalola Falls.

Girlfriend was in a mood most of the day. Her daddy came home late the night before after being gone on a long trip, and we kept her up much later than usual. It was all our fault really.



She’s a pro at pouting. Here she is standing statue still with her back to us because we wouldn’t let her stop at the playground before our hike (but she did get to play once we got back).

So into the backpack she went. We had some ground to cover and were already running short on daylight.



Mr. Blondie was a champ. Not only did he carry her on his back for the hike, but also up and down these stairs.



Here we are at the "bottom of the top", just a little farther to go



And looking down from the very top



Then back down again



We were too late to hit Burt’s Pumpkin Patch on the way home. Our supermarket pumpkin will have to do this year. Em did get to help me pick it out of the bin, lol. Our requisite stop for Dairy Queen Blizzards on the way home hit the spot though. I’d been looking forward to that part the whole second half out of hike :)

Do you have any fall traditions?

  2. Ha ha! It gets better. I told Snoopy to quit pouting one day and he said, "I'm not my arms aren't crossed!"

    Way to go hubby on those stairs-ice cream clearly was a fair reward.

  3. I LOVE that pic of her standing with her back to you. Classic little girl digging her feet in pose (I know, trust me!). Looks like a great weekend. Hiking in the fall is the best.
