The next morning we took off on our 200 mile/one day waterfalls journey. The falls were flowing, and the leaves were golden throughout our route. We were able to see 5-6 falls (one we could noy find with cellualr service frequently out due to mountain terrain. At Talluhla Falls State Park we started together but then learned that in order to see the entire falls you had to walk down ... and back up over 600 steps! I took the challenge, made it down and on the way up, missed the waterfall crossing bridge path and wound up on the other side of the ravine almost 2 miles from the car.
The trip was great and we saw farms, private mountain lakes with mega mansions along one lane dirt roads and lots more). We plan to return to more casually explore the town of Helen, a Georgia wineries and more on our way to and from Tennessee and Opryland in the spring of 2017.
