Spring Break Day 4: Adventures In Helen

Helen,Ga is located in northeast Georgia and is a charming recreation of an alpine, Bavarian village,complete with cobblestone alleys and old-stone buildings. Its very picturesque and was quite fun to explore. Plus, it was really fun to imagine that i was somewhere in Germany, instead of Georgia.




Next we headed off to Georgia's highest point aka, Brasstown Bald. It's located just outside of Helen.And its where i conquered my mild fear of heights by seating atop the ledge at the observation deck. The view here was absolutely amazing. Its said that on clear days, the spectacular 360-degree view from atop the mountain allows you to see four states, Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina, and South Carolina. Being the blind bat that i am, i cannot atest to this.




Duke Creek Falls is another of nature's majestic wonders nestled just outside of Helen. We drove on the Scenic Byway which is a 38 mile scenic journey of nature at its best, to get there. Ideal for those who love to drive on winding roads. I actually would not recommend this trail for anyone with small children. It was quite a long,long walk to get to see the falls (at least to me). Instead, i 'd recommend the Anna Ruby Falls, which we ended up not visiting due to some construction going on there for the next month or so.
Here's a little something for those who'd wanted to meet the man behind my pics...The Manfriend!!
