Picturesque Spots for Great Shots

11/29/2017 | by Kirsten Cooper

With so many things to do in the North Georgia Mountains, sometimes one just wants to go somewhere and revel in the beauty that these mountains have to offer.  What better way to experience the views and streams and mountain life than to take pictures.

These days, one picture can travel a million lives via Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, YouTube etc.  You can share your whole experience with the world for the most part.  I have complied a few places that offer that breathtaking view everyone wants to capture.

Yonah Mountain:  This mountain ridge located in the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest between the towns of Cleveland and Helen Georgia. Offering amazing views with a legend to go with it.  The legend is that of a Native American story about a beautiful Cherokee woman named Nacoochee who fell in love with a Chickasaw warrior named Sautee.  Their love was forbidden by the elders in their tribe and legend has it that a war party formed and followed the eloping lovers and threw Sautee of the mountain with Nacoochee jumping to her death as well, in what is called Lover’s Leap.

Imagine the pictures and selfies one could take on this beautiful landscape.

Amicalola Falls State Park:  Located in norther Georgia, this is the home of the 700 ft Amicalola Falls.  There are several hiking trails throughout the park including one that leads to the top.  Many gorgeous views for breathtaking shots and selfies.

Anna Ruby Falls:  is also in northern Georgia located near Unicoi State Park near Helen Ga.  There is a small admittance charge but is worth the view of two falls side-by-side that are very photogenic.  To get to the falls, there is a half-mile paved trail from the public use area.

While there are many places in northern Georgia (hiking trails, waterfalls and mountain tops) to get that perfect picture or selfie, you can also visit the many events and small towns and immerse yourself in their many traditions.

While out and about visiting these many places, take a selfie and show us some of the memories you’ve created and tag blueskycabinrentals.  In the very near future, be looking for our selfie contest.  You might win some great prizes for these memories you create.

While plotting the areas you would like to visit, book one of our picturesque cabins for a great relaxing vacation.
