Tis' Spring time, and so the wildflowers come out! We headed north in Georgia to Amicolola Falls State Park for the Wildflower Festival! We tabled at the two day festival, talking to park visitors and soon to be Appalachian Trail thru hikers about Leave No Trace outdoor ethics. We even did a small awareness workshop/activity with a local youth church group at the festival.
Amicolola Falls is a 729 ft waterfall (they say the tallest east of the Mississippi river). While at Amicolola we hiked approximately 725 steps top of the waterfalls. Amicolola is also known as the approach to the Appalachian Trail, stemming from Georgia to Maine, 2,135 miles! While at the park we were also fortunate enough to witness the release of a Barn owl that had been rehabilitated after an accident with a vehicle on a nearby road, it was amazing to witness. The park has amazing ranger led programs with naturalists, and a wildlife rehab program. We had a blast at the park and want to thank all the staff that made us feel right at home, Thanks Y'all!
