alpine helen

our little get-away over new year weekend.....to north georgia

             we stayed in this terrific b & b that had a most wonderful german restaurant...

the pretty town of helen, ga, still had their Christmas decorations up.  i loved that big tree with the huge ornaments.

        you could take a nice horse and buggy ride and browse the many wonderful shops

there were several german restaurants in town, but you had a selection of good ole american fare as well.

                  most of the motels and business had a definite german flair.

      we saw our first snowfall of the year while there...it made everything even prettier...

                                        

                       but the highlight of the trip was our trek on new years day to anna ruby falls.

This has got to be one of the cutest places I've seen!  You captured it so well too.
It's just so charming.  Who knew Georgia had this?
Thanks for sharing!  Love the falls of course too.

Looks like you had a lovely time. The buildings remind me of Leavenworth WA. They have the same style buildings.
