Northeast Georgia has several amazing sites to check out. Last week we took a trip over to Tallulah Gorge. This beautiful place is near a town we used to visit to escape from things while we were in college. There is also an amazing BBQ place near here that we used to frequent called Oinkers. The name might be odd, but the food is amazing. You can smell it when you pull up into the parking lot, and of course I got a tee-shirt from here.
To see the best view of the gorge you have to walk down to the suspension bridge that goes over it. To get to the bridge you have to walk down 326 steps. This is like the normal stairs you have in your house. These stairs are almost as steep as a ladder going up to the roof. My son and I decided to make out way to the bottom. My wife and daughter decided to sit this one out because they didn’t like the idea of so many stairs, and after I went there and back I understand why.
We made our way down to the bottom of the long staircase. At the bottom we found the bridge with an amazing view of Hurricane Falls. This was definitely worth the walk down. The view was incredible! I tried to capture the beauty of this view the best I could.
After we finished checking out the sites and sounds of the falls we knew it was time to head back up. The catch to going down 326 steps is having to go back up 326 steps. Looking back going down wasn’t so bad in the end, going up was a whole new challenge. We did eventually make it back up to the top, and at that point I needed some water and a nap.
