Outdoor Wednesday

It's Outdoor Wednesday time! I love looking at everyone's pictures of all things outdoors. Thank you to Susan, over at http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/2009/04/422-outdoor-wednesday-15.html, for hosting this. Be sure to check out all the wonderful posts for Outdoor Wednesday!
Last Saturday, we headed to Atlanta for the Georgia Tech T-game. After we left the game, we headed to Red Top Mountain, one of the Georgia State Parks. The park is located in Cartersville, Georgia on Lake Allatoona. Below is a picture as you enter the park.
This park has tent camping, cottages, and a lodge. Our family walked the trail behind the lodge. On our way back, we saw this squirrel having his "picnic".


Red Top Mountain was an important mining area for iron. They have a reconstructed 1860s homestead where the rangers host educational programs. Below is the Casting Shed.


This is a view of the lake from the trail that we hiked. There are areas along the trail for fishing. There are also benches along the trail that would be perfect for relaxing and reading a good book by the lake.


This is such a beautiful park. Our family had a wonderful time with our picnic and hike. We felt very refreshed and ready to start our week after visiting this park.
Enjoy your Wednesday!
Kim

You know we have never been there. I keep threatening to go whenever we pass by.
Have you been to the new Tellus science museum in Catersville? I want to go there soon.
