Our Trip to the Mountains Part 2
They had great craft cabins laid out all over the grounds, with a Blacksmith shop, log splitting, shingle making, soap making, weaving, quilting, fudge making, kettle corn, bee-keeping, a grist mill, and many other folk crafts. They also have lots of touristy type booths with crafts for sale. It was a great time. Ga Mountain Fairgrounds always has the Fall festival the last 2 weekends in October. We will definitely go back in the future.
We had a campfire every night and it was pretty cool for a Florida girl, but my mother used to call it snuggling weather and I agree.
After we had packed up and gotten our pop-up ready to head out, we drove up to Unicoi State Park. It is the home of Anna Ruby Falls, a great lake with swimming and boating in the summer and a lodge with a great restaurant. We had stayed there in a cabin about 8 or 9 years ago. The hike from the visitors center to the falls is about .5 mile all uphill. But the views are worth the hike.
We said goodbye to our friends who were staying one more day and then traveling up to NC as we started our trip across the mountains into Tennessee. I will share that part of the trip later tonight.
Ralph & Jo - We enjoyed our time with them so much. We will definitely do it again.
