After a day in Atlanta, we headed out to our base camp at Apple Mountain Resort.They gave us a unit that faced the woods since I requested something away from all the activities:
|Entrance to the resort|
|Our unit was the last one on the right, top floor - thank goodness for the ramp!|
|Living room/dining/kitchen = cozy! bedrooms are behind me in this shot...I guess they all look prety much alike.|
Our first excursion was Saturday morning to Tallulah Gorge, 10 minutes away from the resort.
I think it was 531 steps each way. The trip down is relatively easy, meaning you can take the stairs with ease as you walk and talk with relatives on the way down. The trip back up is quite different, I would say it relatively brutal, meaning if one of those relatives tries to take your seat on one of the resting benches on the way back up, you might have to get brutal and throw them over the side.

On Sunday we headed north beyond the gorge to North Carolina - we were told about a very scenic drive, with plenty of waterfalls to see. The one pictured below is my favorite.
