Everything about Toccoa Falls on the Toccoa Falls College campus was magical. The clear water and sand were glistening like tiny jewels and the mist was refreshing on a hot day. Digging my toes in the sand I was jealous that I did not have a place this amazing to study at when I was in college. The falls were gigantic and I just wanted to sit there all day and enjoy the view!
I did eventually drag myself away from this little slice of heaven to go meet up with my Aunt who took us on a crazy off-road adventure in her Jeep to some falls that only the locals know about. I could not be more giddy getting to climb up them without signs telling me not to 😀

Our first stop on the road trip was Amicalola Falls State Park in Georgia. We got there bright and early after driving through the night and sustaining the only speeding ticket for the whole trip! I admit it was a bit of a mood dampener at first until we parked and got out of the car to the roaring sound of rushing water. Florida doesn’t really have waterfalls so I have never seen one even though I am completely obsessed with them. I was worried it would not hold to my high expectations until I got a peek from the top of the falls overlooking the mountains. Absolutely gorgeous and everything I was hoping for!! We clambered down the twisting, winding steps through the forest to reach the bottom of the falls and got some really awesome long-exposure shots. Without meaning to it kind of became a theme to drink a bit from each waterfall I came in contact with. Tastes like freedom 😉
I highly, highly recommend Georgia and North Carolina (but more on that to come) if you are looking for some beautiful waterfalls to admire. Without wasting any time we were back on the road heading to the next destination…

I’m back yayy!!! 🙂 I really must have been severely disillusioned to think I would be able to edit photos and make posts while on our Road Trip Extravaganza 2k15. Although happy to be home I really do miss being on the road and after this weekend I am sure to get travel fever once more. But for now I’m in the process of sorting all the pictures and I am going to attempt to make another video.
Here is a short post though when we went to Fort De Soto before our road trip. This place is gorgeous (you know, if you’re into walking through deserted wastelands to get to the beach)! If you ever decide to come here I promise you it will be worth your while; the sand is nice and soft and the water is clearer than most Florida beaches I have been to. If you do not mind the small trek I recommend parking along the shoulder and not the parking lots to get the full experience 😉 Also don’t forget sunscreen, it gets HOT!
