The Delight of Dahlonega

By guest writer Maggie Garred.

The first thing I noticed as I drove into the town square was the magnificent North Georgia Mountains. I found Dahlonega, the small town nestled in these mountains, to be delightful at every turn. As I explored Dahlonega, it proved itself to be jovial, festive, and full of activity. I had assumed there would be a town square with nice places to eat, but I soon dismissed my expectations as I stumbled upon art galleries, wine tastings, and so much more.

Photographing Waterfalls: How to Make the Most of Your Camera

North Georgia is blessed with an abundance of water flowing through the Appalachian Mountains. When this water encounters hard caprock or a particularly steep section, the result is often a waterfall or cascade. Waterfalls become a destination for hikers and sightseers. In fact, many of the hiking trails here in the mountains exist only to lead to a waterfall.

Known for the seasonal farmers market, free concerts, and First Friday movie events in the summer, Hancock Park also is home to one of Dahlonega's strangest gold mining attractions. Made of riveted boiler plate iron, this three ton submersible is something which definitely catches the eye and draws you in for a closer look.
