Savannah National Wildlife Refuge

We took a trip to the wild side in Savannah.  My sister wanted us to go gator hunting.  She drove us out to the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge.  We weren't sure what to expect, but ended up enjoying this little adventure.




The refuge occupies the land of a former rice plantation.   We traveled on the the gravel road and stopped at different areas which caught our interests.  We loved traveling through the little pockets of trees draped in Spanish moss.  We saw an abundance of fowl, insects, lizards and amphibians.















We saw three alligators in the murky water.  I couldn't get a great picture of them.  So, we will have to go out and try again our next visit.

Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Savannah, Georgia

We stopped at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Savannah during our recent visit.  It is a must for the older kids and adults alike.  The historic significance of the building and the beautiful architecture wowed us.

Hiking Linville Falls

The boy and I ventured up the mountain to Linville Falls.  I am so fortunate to have a great hiking buddy!  This hike is moderate according to the park service.  The terrain isn't bad.  The path is wide and easy to navigate, but it is uphill for the majority of the hike.  I recommend taking plenty of water and pace yourself if you are not an avid hiker.

The hike to the upper falls is nice and easy.  We did this hike on two occasions.





The hike to Chimney Top view and Ewrin's view is uphill!  The views were well worth the climb.














The hike along Dugger Falls is nice and quiet.  We enjoyed this little jaunt.
