We thought about going to Atlanta for the weekend and taking in some Six Flags and maybe stone mountain, possibly even a Braves game.
The point mallard festivities were nothing new and something we have seen and been a part of many years, we made it over there but were bored easily with it.

I have been wanting to go hiking, so Thomas and I decided that we would do that. We spent all day Sunday hiking. We loaded up that morning and headed to High Falls. This is near Geraldine Alabama. When we got there we were prepared for the worst hiking with enough gear to stay gone all day and then some, you know just being prepared. We started out on this one hiking trail to wind up doing a complete circle right back to the vehicle. We were searching for the "High Falls" and so that was a bit comical and discouraging that we made it there hiked through in a circle and saw nothing! lol We asked a gentleman for help, and he led us to another trail. We hiked this trail which led us straight to the bridge. The bridge we had been wanting to see as well, so this was good. Next thing we saw was the HIGH FALLS, standing right in front of the bridge. A few moments passed by and we realized we didn't have to walk more than 300 yards down from the car on a paved road to be right where we were standing...we laughed at ourselves, but at least we got some hiking in.

We continued on to Laurel Falls which by the time we got the falls the rain at started in on us, this fall was gorgeous, small and in such a location that taking a photo was damn near impossible! The rain was coming and I had nothing to protect my camera so I shoved it under my shirt and we hiked on out to the vehicle. We spent a great majority of the day walking trails in the woods, it was very nice, very quiet and exactly the way I wanted to spend this weekend! :)
