Cloudland Canyon is an Amazing Part of Georgia State Park System
During the middle of the trip we drove on the Lookout Mountain Scenic Highway. It was really a gorgeous drive too. We sneaked in the back way to Chattanooga. It was about 20 minutes from Cloudland. Ruby Falls and the Incline Railroad both looked worth the trip and worthy of exploration, but we arrived too late in the day for the side trips. On the way there, we began listening to Sign of the Beaver, which is a great children's book on tape. Click on my culturedkid blog link to read my review of the story, which I will post shortly.
the hike in Amicalola Falls State Park. These stairs are grated at cloudland and it took a little coaxing to get the dog to descend. But it was so pretty even without the water flowing. Here is an image from the base of waterfall #1, which is about a mile hike total from the cottages in the east rim campground.
