I've always been amazed by the fall foliage colors, so this trip to North Georgia was carefully planned to coincide perfectly with those dates. Of course, a little bit of luck will always help since those dates may change depending on the weather.
Also, this was the first time we decided to rent a cabin near a river, instead of going for mountain cabins, the experience is quite different if you are looking for those amazing landscape views in front of you, but honestly, I enjoyed being surrounded by the colorful trees and sleeping with the river sound.
You can walk in the Toccoa river since is mostly shallow water, but instead, I decided to walk several miles along the river looking for the perfect spot to capture some photos. I found this place where huge boulders inside the river gave me the composition I was looking for.
A walking trail around the Lake Trahlyta in Vogel State Park features an optional side trail down to a viewing platform for the Trahlyta waterfall. The platform at the bottom of the fall is very easy to access and the visitors can enjoy this beautiful waterfall right in front of you.
This breathtaking avenue sheltered by live oaks and Spanish moss leads to the Wormsloe Plantation where are the ruins of a Colonial estate. This place is near Savannah, Georgia, fortunately I was visiting some friends in Jacksonville, Florida and I didn't hesitate to drive two hours to visit this historic site.
As soon as you pass the large arch at the property entrance you will be enchanted driving 1.5 mile (2.4 km) under these live oaks covered in Spanish moss gently swaying in the breeze. Definitely something worth to see!
