Waterfalls of Georgia

Georgia Waterfalls, so far as we're aware, exist predominantly in the far north of the state where the foothills of the Southern Appalachian Mountains reside.

Prior to this trip, the only things that we knew about the state were its sports scene (e.g. SEC football, ACC basketball, and pro sports teams like the Falcons, Braves, and Hawks as well as the Masters pro golf tournament), CNN, Coca Cola, and even a couple of my favorite bands growing up in the B-52's and REM.

But after going waterfalling in at least the far north of the state, we got to see more of the true essence of the state and its people than through the skewed lens of the corporate products and what we were exposed to through the media.

So far we were only able to visit a handful of waterfalls in this state, including its largest and most popular waterfalls in Amicalola Falls and Anna Ruby Falls. We even managed to see one in a place where some dedicated and determined people sought to improve upon Nature at the High Falls in Rock City.

Indeed, I'm sure there's a lot more waterfalling to do in Georgia. In the mean time, have a look at our humbling sampling and see if this won't inspire you explore more of the Empire State of the South.
