Gorgeous mountain top views, charming little towns, and waterfalls around every bend in the road made Northeast Georgia an exciting and beautiful place to spend some time. I don’t think I set my camera down for more than a few minutes the entire time I was road tripping through this corner of the Peach State. By the time my trip was over I had over three hundred images of landscapes, food, shopping, and recreation. But you don’t want to look at three hundred photos so I whittled it down to just my twenty favorite.
