WELL--we tried to enter the forest service road at the same place we went in February.. But--to our surprise, they had that road closed.... Hmmmmmm... So --as we do alot, we went to Plan B.... We went to another entrance into the area.
What a nice route... We followed the Chattahoochee River up the mountain on Forest Road 44. AND ---we were able to park and walk down to the river... What a fun surprise for us that day!!!!
These two waterfalls are on the way (off of Forest Road 44) toward Horsetrough Falls. Since we hadn't been this way before, these were two new waterfalls for us...
Today, I'll share some pictures from these stops along Forest Road 44. Be sure to click on the pictures in order to see enlargements. Above is a picture of the Chattahoochee River ---where we stopped to take pictures along our way.

After seeing these two waterfalls, we headed on toward Horsetrough Falls (saw it again --which looked so different than it looked when we saw it in February). We also hiked and saw 3 other waterfalls near there.. That will be on another blog post...
It was a great day for waterfalls (5 new ones total plus Horsetrough Falls) ---and a nice break while on our way to the beach.
Hope you have a nice weekend. Try to stay COOL. It's horribly hot here (hotter than I can remember since we moved here in 2003) and VERY VERY dry..... BUT--- there are areas of the country struggling much worse than we are. Prayers for the people effected by the fires in Colorado (and other places) --and also for the people who had flooding and/or damage in Florida due to tropical storm, Debby. I'll see you on Monday!
