A Return to Tallulah Gorge and Other Travel



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

The picture above was taken in June and shows Tallulah Gorge in Georgia. The gorge contains six waterfalls which we enjoyed seeing from the rim. There is a dam at the head of the gorge which restricts the flow of water.

This morning Betsy and I are leaving for a couple of days in northern Georgia. They are releasing water from the dam on Wednesday and we want to be there to see what the waterfalls looked like before the dam was built. We've had this trip planned for several weeks.

Then on Friday we are going to Jacksonville for Ray's (Betsy's brother) memorial service. We will get back home on Sunday and then on the following Tuesday I will take Betsy to Maggie Valley, North Carolina, for her getaway with her grade school girlfriends.

I can visit you using my iPod Touch, but unless I can pry Betsy's laptop from her, I don't think I'll be able to post for much of that time. But don't give up on me -- I'll be back as soon as possible.

I bet those waterfalls will be gorgeous and I can hardly wait to see them. How wonderful you knew they were going to do that.
Prayers for a safe trip to Florida and back. Give Betsy a hug for me.
