Before I came home Friday I made a walk around the lake. Black Rock Mountain State Park is Georgia's Highest Park (in elevation). There is also a lake, fed by all the mountain streams that come down the hills. There is a very nice walk around the lake that is less than a mile and it is always enjoyable. I am also trying to get used to my new camera, so I got out there very early Friday morning and had the lake to myself.
The mountains are filled with mountain laurel and they are on the decline from their blooming season, but they are still very pretty. You can see them in the woods in the background. The cabin backs up to the state park so there are beautiful woods behind us. In the evening it sound like a symphony with all the birds singing. The only thing that worries me is when I hear the dogs barking as I am almost sure they are barking at bears. I see bear trails all the time. I try to be inside when it gets dark!
By the time this goes up on my blog, I should be on the cruise ship off the coast of SE Alaska, so hopefully I will get a lot of photos to share! Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
