High mountain creeking is the safest type of water you can be in at the moment! 🏔💦🎣
Friendly Friday reminder to wear your mask and practice social distancing even if you’re tired of it and want to give in because fall is coming and I’m not here for a quarantine spooky season (although I bet a contagion/pandemic themed haunted house would be so cool...maybe in a few years). DO IT FOR THE PUMPKINS I BEG OF YOU!
They said one isn’t a real waterfaller until one has seen Minnehaha Falls. It was time to erase this tremendous guilt of mine. So about three months ago I dragged myself to Minnehaha Falls. Hiking trails around the state were shutting down from covid. The watch read 8 pm — the time when normal people are huddling around the dinner table at Louie’s on the Lake, while some deranged photographer is rambling around the shady woods. Only one other person was seen. A merry yell of “howdy” blew into my face from the Georgia Bulldogs t-shirt less than 6 feet away (I didn’t even measure). I flash back to home, where someone somewhere is helplessly gasping for oxygen. Oh how I’d love to just be perpetually whistling in the woods, not a care in the world. Anyways, I digress. Taking three months to edit this photo just illustrates how unmotivated I was. It’s not that Minnehaha Falls isn’t a gorgeous waterfall, but when you see thousands of pictures of it every week on social media, how can you possibly come up with anything new?!
Standing behind Lula Falls, the best showcase of pure waterfall power in Georgia in my opinion. It’s unbelievable how the forces of water and erosion have carved out such a giant grotto over the decades. The force of the water was so strong that the spray and wind was sent backwards into the grotto, almost knocking you over if you get close.
Rhen and I were the only ones on this trail that day. It was peaceful and carefree; it was a simpler time.
At the present, things aren’t very simple. There are so many emotions reverberating through the world right now. Anger and frustration and fear and sadness, my hope is that the end of all this we remember our humility and find a way to love again.
