I took over 350 pictures while we were in Northeast Georgia a few weeks ago. This trip was one of those few moments where I was not ready to leave on the last day which is weird for me. Usually on the last day of a trip I am ready to get home, but this time I think I could have stayed at least another week. However, we had to leave because I school was starting soon, and I had to get ready.
With all of the pictures I took I wasn’t sure which one I should post first. I decided to just post the first day of our trip where we went to Toccoa, Georgia. This shot was taken on my alma mater. My wife and I both graduated from Toccoa Falls College. Not only did we graduate here, this is the place where we met, fell in love, and got married. This place is very special to us. It was great walking around campus and remembering all of the good times we had together. We shared stories with our children telling them how we met and sharing different memories from campus.
Question, how many of you can say you have a waterfall on your college campus? This is the real Toccoa Falls. Toccoa actually means beautiful. That is how the Native Americans who lived in this area saw the falls, and I couldn’t agree with them more. This is one of the highest waterfalls in the United States. For those of you who love to look at waterfalls this one is pretty easy to get to. It is a very short walk to the falls. The walk is pretty awesome because you are walking by Toccoa Creek. You do have to pay a couple of dollars to access it, but that goes towards caring for the area. If you are alumni you can visit for free. That is the least they can do for me considering I paid the school tens of thousands of dollars for my education.
Let me know in the comments what interesting things you had on your college campus?
