A Visit to the Falls – Throwback Thursday

“The more sand that has escaped from the hourglass of our life, the clearer we should see through it.” – Jean Paul

Last August my wife and I decided to take a family on a trip down memory lane. We traveled to where we meet in Northeast Georgia. We camped near the German themed town of Helen, GA, and then we explored all parts of the area. We hiked down to Tallulah Gorge, walked up to Anna Ruby Falls, ate good food, and enjoyed each other’s company at the campground. It was a great trip filled with memories and fun.

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. Below are the posts that show the falls in color.

What was special about the last place you went to school at? Share in the comments.
