  • Canada Creek Falls – Suches, GA

    Canada Creek Falls – Suches, GA

    It was another beautiful mid-spring day with bright sun and temps in the 60s. Godfrey and I started out the hike around 9:30 am. We were set for what was billed as an easy 4 mile hike that followed a couple creeks with some waterfalls to view… according to Alltrails. This was not correct. The…

  • Three Forks Trail – Clayton, Georgia

    Three Forks Trail – Clayton, Georgia

    It was an absolute perfect day for a long hike. Godfrey and I ventured a couple hours from home to a trail near Clayton, Georgia. It was a cool morning. The temperature was a little over 50 degrees and maybe hit 60 by the time I was done. This trail is overloaded with giant rhododendrons…

    Fort Yargo State Park – 2023-03-14

    It’s Pi Day! I’m at Fort Yargo State Park, in Winder, Georgia. It’s my first hike on this podcast without my Dog Godfrey. So, I apologize for the lack of Godfrey Pics. The trail beings with a new bridge that I didn’t know existed. It was a perfect day for a later winter hike. The…

  • Leap Day at Leatherwood Creek Loop, Toccoa, GA.

    Leap Day at Leatherwood Creek Loop, Toccoa, GA.

    It’s Leap Day! Not that it’s anything special honestly and it’s not why I decided to go on a hike. It’s been a while and Godfrey and I needed to get back outside on the trails. It was a brisk morning around 40 degrees. The trail, part of the Chattahoochee National Forest, began with an…

    2023-12-14 – Watson Mill Bridge State Park

    The audio for today’s podcast is cut off. Like an idiot I didn’t bring extra batteries for my recorder and the battery died 17 minutes in. So, unfortunately, you won’t be subjected to my incessant prattle. I decided to post what I have anyway. See the pics and watch the YouTube video below for more…

  • 2023-11-28 – Montgomery Falls – Dahlonega, Georgia

    2023-11-28 – Montgomery Falls – Dahlonega, Georgia

    I went for a hike to Montgomery Falls with my dog Godfrey for my 57th birthday. The hike to the falls is a little short so we extended it a little by going a half mile or so past the falls to another creek crossing. In all we did a little less than four miles…

  • 2023.10.19 Bearden Falls – Dahlonega, Georgia

    2023.10.19 Bearden Falls – Dahlonega, Georgia

    I was a great fall day for a hike. Temperatures were in the mid 50s with a slightly overcast sky. I picked this trail for the waterfall and while the hike was relatively short it was a lot of fun. The hike is fairly easy until you get close to the falls. To get to…

  • 2023-06-13 Dead Man’s Branch to Contentment Falls and Trestle Trail

    2023-06-13 Dead Man’s Branch to Contentment Falls and Trestle Trail

    We had a great hike today. We went roughly 6 miles, saw a beautiful waterfall, a pretty cool train trestle (I annoyingly keep saying trellis in the video & audio because I couldn’t think of the word while recording), and got off track a couple times. To start I couldn’t find the trail head. The…

    2023-05-11 Rhododendron Trail to Chenocetah Memorial Tower

    It’s been a bit since I went out hiking. Sometimes life gets in the way. I regularly get out and walk around my neighborhood with my dog Godfrey but I’d rather hike out in the forests and mountains of North Georgia. Today we took a short hike of about 3.5 miles from the trailhead to…
