Hey baby I’m a country man

We just got back from a WONDERFUL weekend away with our best friends!! A very generous family we work with at church let us use their cabin in Copperhill, TN (just over the GA/TN border near Blue Ridge, GA) to get away and enjoy the beautiful fall weather, changing leaves, and quiet mountain living. We watched the Dawgs beat Vandy on Saturday, went apple picking in Ellijay, and ate chicken fried steak at the Circle J… Trey’s favorite part about the Circle J is that they gave him his very own pitcher or sweet tea and bucket of ice. Before heading home to star gaze in the hot tub, we stopped for a few games of bowling at the Fannin Family Fun Lanes.

On Sunday we slept in, made breakfast, and then got ready to go for a day hike. There was only one small problem… we didn’t know where any good trails were. So we drove into town and asked a gas station attendant where there was a good day hike near by. The following was her response: Go back to the three-way stop, turn left and go until the highway turns into a four lane road. Take a left at the beer store and go all the way down that road until you’ve crossed over two concrete bridges. When you get to the fork in the road, veer left and you’ll get to Dudley Gap which is a nice little day hike (Trey swears she said Deadly Gap and that she called her uncles and told them she sent them some fresh hunting targets). Well, needless to say we drove around for about an hour and a half (probably veered left at 3 different forks in the road, winked three times at the tree with four limbs, and clapped twice when we passed JR’s chicken coop) and still never found Dudley (deadly) Gap. But we did enjoy the views and the country scenery and eventually gave up and ate our picnic lunch at a camp ground before heading home for naps after our grueling hike. All in all, it was a much needed weekend in a beautiful place with great friends. Enjoy a few pics:
