Vogel State Park
Loading up to go to Vogel State Park in Ga. We head out in the morning. Gonna be cold up there at night....brrrrrr. Great hiking though. So, we drove up to Vogel State Park in north Georgia last Sunday. An 8 hour drive, mostly in the rain. The hardest rain was at the park while we were trying to get backed in and set up. We did find a really nice site located right on a mountain stream which was running quite nicely. The picture of the owl was for Carsen's benefit. She has been afraid of owls ever since the beginning. Something about the way they can turn their heads around freaks her out. The mountain shot is a Brasstown Bald, the highest point in Georgia. We took the shuttle to the top and walked back down. It was really cold up there. As the week went on, the weather got colder and colder. We even had snow flurries on Thursday morning. By that night we were ready to head back home to warmer weather. Cold weather campers we are not! So, Friday morning, we packed up and headed back south. It was 25 degrees when we left!
