girl meets nature

Over the weekend, I took a trip up to Big Canoe. It's an exclusive community located in the Georgia mountains about 1 hour north of Atlanta. Big Canoe has over 8,000 acres of woods, trails, lakes and streams. It's absolutely stunning there. My bestie Dionne invited me up to the mountains for a day of hiking, swimming and reflection. This city girl was so up for it.

This place is breathtaking. We went on a 4 hour hike. Yes, I said 4 hours. I actually wanted to keep going but we had paddle boats waiting for us. After some time on the lake, we relaxed at the pool. We ended our evening with dinner at the country club. We ate on the patio which overlooks another beautiful lake and a stunning golf course. It was a great day to be in the mountains.
