The Trail of Tears National Historic trail is a bit hard to follow, but the sites along the various routes offer a look into a dark chapter in the country’s history of removing the Cherokee Indians.

Commemorating the “death knell of the Confederacy”, the Battle of Chickamauga can be retraced through the tours and trails of the Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park.

I only had two days in Savannah. It wasn’t enough time to do everything I wanted, but it was enough time to capture some amazing photos of this beautiful southern city.

Each of these five northeast Georgia state parks has a unique feature, lots of outdoor recreation, and more than a few reasons to spend some time in a campground, cabin, or lodge.

Toccoa Falls is the tallest free falling waterfall on the east coast, located on the campus of Toccoa Falls College, just outside the town of Toccoa, Georgia.

It was the most terrifying road I’d ever driven, but once I reached the summit of Bell Mountain in Georgia it was also one of the most spectacular views I’d ever seen.

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 a little bit of time.

The Cherohala Skyway is a beautiful and hidden drive through the mountains with lots of scenic overlooks, but which are the best for the mountain views and sunsets?

With three days on the Cherohala Skyway I discovered just why it’s called the “Skyway”, hiked a few trails, saw a stunning sunset, and spent some cozy nights camping by a lake.

After skipping over a national park with just a two hour visit I finally decided I needed to end drive by tourism on my trips, and I found the result absolutely wonderful.

The problem with the Great Smoky Mountains National Park being the most-visited in the country is that people tend to do the same thing year after year. How about something different?

The beauty of Chattanooga becomes apparent on the first evening and that is exactly why I have been going back ever since with my camera in hand. Here are some of my favorite photos.
