This past Saturday I woke up at 5:30am and drove up to Amicalola Falls in Dawsonville, Georgia. Amicalola means “tumbling waters” in the Cherokee language. It is the largest waterfall east of the Mississippi River, at 729 feet.
It was an absolutely gorgeous morning and was very nice being out there before the crowds moved in. So peaceful and beautiful. They have some paths that are made of recycled tires which made it a pretty easy hike to the foot of the falls, which was very convenient and a welcome change from my hike through the woods at Stone Mountain last week. Here are some pictures I got while I was up there!
