This entire week has been wonderful. We made the 9 hour drive from Gulf Breeze FL to escape the heat and humidity of August. The upper Gulf coast of FL enjoys beautiful weather from October through April, but is unbearable in the Summer. Add the ever present Mosquito and we spend our days and nights indoors.

We arrived at Blackrock Mountain State park Monday morning to mid 70s and low humidity. Nights have been in the high 50s to low 60s. Not cold enough for heat, but the blanket sure felt good. Cloudless days with mild breezes. We got into chill mode very fast.

Friday. Steady rain and fog all day. Our little house is dry as toast and so cozy we are just having a lay in day. The campground has been quiet all week, but today is exceptionally so. I have to compliment my wife on our new twin bed arrangement. We have much more usable space. A serendipitous bonus has been the bistro table. See my post under More Room for photos.

We will leave tomorrow for the low lands and I will be sad.

Until next time Blackrock Mountain.image.jpg image.jpg

I am pretty sure if you head south you will be passing Tallulah Gorge State Park, 10 miles below Clayton, GA on US 23/441. You might want to stop at the visitor center which has some interesting video about the area. Plenty of parking for a Casita

 

Lots of pictures

Pete and Dee,

I was driving when I replied to your post so please forgive the terse reply.

I believe it was your photo album that led us to Tallaluh Falls. we did have a great time there although our timing was off for the Fall colors.

We also like Amicalola Falls and that is where our camping adventure began, but in a tent. After that outing I told my wife no more tents, and we began looking for a used Casita, which we found in Hiawassee, GA.

I love your town of Dahlanaga. very quaint. How blessed to live in North Georpgia with so many beautiful camping areas. We have to drive eight hours to escape this FL heat.
