Tallulah Gorge, Georgia

Tallulah Gorge,  located in North Georgia near Clayton,  is one of our favorite places to visit.  In fact, we were just there on May 4.  The picture above was taken on May 4, and was taken from the far side of the gorge looking down.  See that bridge?  We climbed down the SIX MILLION (well--a few less than that!!!) STEPS, crossed the bridge, headed on down more steps to view Hurricane Falls at the bottom of the gorge,  and then headed back up the six million steps to the other side...  Great EXERCISE --especially going back UP!!!!! ha  (George read that there were 1,089 total steps down and back up... Felt like SIX million!!!! ha ha)

That just had to take your breath away at the beauty of it. I always wonder how they construct those bridges.
Absolutely awesome! And I can imagine that it felt like 6 million steps! Ha! ♥b

Oh my goodness, Betsy! You must have more stamina than I have. I don't think I could make it on all those steps. Absolutely gorgeous view, though!

That is an amazing photo because it gives a great perspective. I have a fear of heights and it almost made me pass out when I saw it! You and George are amazing, too. That made me tired thinking about all those steps! In my mind, I took aspirin for "my" knees even though you walked it all.

I have a difficult time with steps! Breathtaking view of the bridge.

The falls are beautiful any time of year but the spring green in your photos is especially nice. I've never made it down those six million steps!!! I admire you and George!
