Last weekend I flew off to Georgia for a girls getaway in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The four of us came together to celebrating the Lauren’s upcoming wedding – she’s marrying my brother-in-law in the Spring! We spent three days whitewater rafting, apple picking, hiking, finding our way through a corn maze, oogling over massive pumpkins and eating cheese and drinking wine. While it was still a bit warm and most of the leaves on the trees were still green, it was a great weekend and I highly recommend a visit to this region as soon as you can get yourself there! Thanks to Lauren and her gracious parents, we had a beautiful place to stay that was the perfect home base for the weekend!
A few highlights from the trip…
We survived the Ocoee River! (Me, Jennifer, our guide Acacia, Lauren & Jessica). Our guide is a real survivor woman! She spends the winter in Juno, Alaska teaching wilderness survival courses at the university!
