Blue Ridge Birthday Party

This weekend he headed up to the Blue Ridge Mountains for a night in a cabin with Birthday Girl, Liz. We spent some time trying to fly fish in the murky Toccoa River right behind the cabin and Derek pulled out a small Brown trout. I tried my hand from the shore and only got the line tangled. On Saturday we went to Stanley Gap and hike short trail where we saw some waterfalls on part of the Benton McKaye Trail. Then we hiked along a stretch of Stanley Creek. On Sunday we tried to find another spot to fly fish and wound up taking a small forest road into public National Forest land. Lauren and I were worried that our car wouldn’t make it all the way. So once we got to a place to turn around we left the car and got into Liz and Derek’s. It drove all four of us plus 2 dogs and 2 fetuses all the way to the forest service gate and then we hiked down to a secluded stretch of the river where we hung out for awhile. Spring is great in Georgia but it is quickly tuning into summer with temps in the mid 80s recently.
