My friend Patty and I decided to take advantage of the Labor Day Weekend this year and go camping. She lives in Atlanta so I drove up there and then we drove up to Cloudland Canyon, about 2 hours NW of Atlanta.
We camped in the RV/Tent campground. This was a last minute trip and it was easier to shove all our supplies in the car rather than hike them in to the tents only campground. Here is my little tent on our campsite.
Sadly neither of us were in Girl Scouts and had issues starting a fire. Our neighbor helped us out and we managed to heat up our hot dogs and veggies and then create a campfire to stay warm by for the night.
The next morning we woke up and found the trail that leads into the canyon.
This is looking from the cave back out the opening. There wasn't much to see beyond mud and rocks and we were on a tight schedule to get back to the campground before dark so we left. Hiking back on the trail, we started to get tired and were dreading the ridiculous stair climb back up to the top. Luckily we came across a couple of hikers that we had talked to earlier in the day. They were a nice older couple from the same town as Patty and they offered us a ride since they were staying in the same campground.
