A Color Change is Imminent!

By

Believe it or not, we only have a few weeks left of this beautiful green summer here in the North Georgia Mountains!  This is a photo I took of the river near my house. All summer you could sit and watch people enjoying the river in canoes, kayaks, and big yellow tubes. Screams of delight from children having the time of their lives. It's been a wonderful summer.

Now in just a short time, these beautiful green leaves will begin to take on an orange hue. Soon we will take our annual drive through the mountains to see the magnificence of orange, yellow, and brown cover the land in a sight so beautiful you can't capture it on film. You can only appreciate it's real beauty by seeing it for yourself.

In Dawsonville, the 41st Annual Moonshine Festivalwill be October 25th & 26th. The Moonshine Festival celebrates Dawson County's history during prohibition when liquor was illegal and the Great Depression of the 30's when running moonshine through the Northeast Georgia Mountains was a way of life. Thousands flock to the birthplace of NASCAR racing to hear about the legends of Nascar: Seay, Hall, Parks, and Gober Sosebee. 

In nearby Dahleonga, the Annual Gold Rush Days is October 18th & 19th. 

Thousands will come to celebrate Dahlonega's 1828 discovery of gold.  300 art and craft exhibitors will gather, and it is estimated that a crowd of over 200,000 visit over the weekend to join in the fun! 

These are just a few of the reasons to plan a visit to the North Georgia Mountains this fall! Come on up and see us. We're waiting for you!

Wow - what a great post highlighting the events in your area!  The pix are gorgeous.  Are you anywhere near Helen?  Is that the correct name?

Kimberly, I LOVE the fall!  I'm a knitter so I look forward to wearing interesting new handknits. I'm working on a few right now in beautiful fall colors.  :)  Can I correct your spelling though?  The word you want is "imminent."  :)

Leesa, In the most southern accent I can muster, Helen is just "up the road apiece" from here. 

In actual terms, I believe it's about a 35-40 minute drive. :)

It is very beautiful here. One of the reasons I fell in love with the area and plan to stay for a very long time.

I'm surprised that colors change so early so far south.  I travel to Vermont a lot where they often begin changing in the very last days of August and then get going full force around September 20th.  Here in New Jersey, they start changing around October 1st.

Our fall colors arrive very late here and are puny compared to the Eastern Seaboard and New England.

Kimberly-  Dawsonville is a beautiful area.  I have family in Dawsonville and we love going down there!  We have beautiful falls in West Michigan too, the only difference is I'll take your "winters" over ours any day!

It's a great time of the year when the fall colors change. In my area the colors don't change until mid October. We have a little while to go yet then it will be a trip to the Shenandoah Mountains.
