It's about a 2 hr drive from Atlanta, GA. Use the link below for directions:
Aunt Ruth and Grandma posing with the kids with the Minnehaha Falls cascading in the background.
I tried to stay out of these pics, but my sister insisted. Ya know, I just didn't want to take away from the beauty in the background with my overwhelming good looks.
Grandma was most enthusiastic about making a snowman and we used her snow ball for the base. Clayton gave it a great nose job though.
Tallulah Gorge, Georgia
This place is right off the HWY 441 on the way to Clayton, GA
Here's a look down into the gorge at one of the waterfalls below. You can hike down there, but it takes a while to get back up.
|Further north and a little east into North Carolina, and you can visit Asheville. It has a cool little historic district and many nice restaurants and shops. Of course the main attraction is the Biltmore mansion.|
Most places were opening late because of snow and we were cold and hungry. So, we tried out a Palestinian restaurant ... because they were open. The waitress was very sweet to take a picture of us in their cool dining room.
I will have to say that the Biltmore is best visited on non-holidays. It was too crowded for us on a Tuesday of the week between Christmas and New Year.
They do have wheelchairs for any guests that may have problems standing for hours, so you don't have to pack one in the back of your minivan all the way from Texas
|Anyone in your party who doesn't ski can sit on the couch in the living room and watch everyone else wipeout.|
