It should come as no surprise that Betsy and I have favorite places we have visited several times.  Ocean Isle Beach in North Carolina is one, and Mt. Nebo in Arkansas is another.

But there are other places we have returned to as well.  One place a little closer is Mill Creek in the Cohutta Wilderness of northern Georgia.  We came across Mill Creek almost by accident the first time we were there, but there was a short hike from a campground along the creek to what is called the Shoals of Mill Creek.  There are several places along the creek where we could sit and enjoy the beauty and the sound of rushing water.

It takes a fairly long drive along a gravel Forest Service road to get to Mill Creek, but we both definitely think the drive is worth it.

The photo above, from my archives, was taken during a visit to Mill Creek in March, 2011.

    i just had a thought, if you had a video camera on the front of your Prius, just think of the sights we would see….

    Strange how all the leaves of that tree on the right, are aiming down.

    Waterfalls make me smile. Nice blog.

    A place to sit real close beside it, I bet that is extremely rare with waterfalls! Could you go in the spring and summer and have a picnic there? I can see why you like it so much.

  7. Ruth Says:

    Beautiful. Right now I would love to sit down beside that water and just take it all in.

    Is this the famous area which was part of the Re-voluntary War?

    Seems to run in my mind somehow. Great photo!

    Do you two ever take your shoes off and wade in the shallower places? I would have when young, but not sure I would now.

    Another beautiful place you’ve shared with us. Doug’s not too keen on those “service” road trips, so we’ll probably not see this one in person.

    This is gorgeous. I can imagine a nice picnic lunch while overlooking this view. 🙂

    Looks like a place I would love to visit. That is so peaceful….I can just hear the water running.

    What gorgeous silken water!

    Very pretty. It surely was worth the drive. There is a town called Mill Creek not far from here. It has a creek called Penny Creek that the city fathers renamed Mill Creek. I think they though the new name sounded more better. MB

    Very beautiful. I should stay there for a long time and enjoy what Mother Nature has created for us to admire.

    I can almost hear that rushing water.
