Georgia on my mind

I've been in Georgia since Thursday, and we will start hiking this Thursday. We only have a few days left. today we went to REI and bought last minute items like fuel for our stove and an extra pair of socks. 

 

 Our first meal in Georgia: breakfast at a Waffle House.

Ok I've seriously eaten so much that Eric is going to have to roll me down the trail. Seriously so much food.

And it's all been good but on top of all the extra food I ate at home "because I'll walk it off anyway" I'm feeling a little sorry for my joints. Hopefully I'll lose some weight quickly.

 Our first hike in Georgia was a short 1.1 miles to the top of Kennesaw Mountain, a historic civil war battlefield

But it hasn't all been food and fat. We got to see Kennesaw Mountain (this counts as a mountain out here? Huh...) we visited the Atlanta Botanical Gardens and we got to spend some amazing time with my family!

We also visited the historic Oakland Cemetary. Lots of famous Georgians are buried there. We also visited Jon Bennet's grave, but that wasn't in Oakland Cemetary, and we just drive by as my grandma pointed out the window.

And breakfast has been pretty amazing on the screened porch! It's gonna be rough to go to the trail after being so spoiled!
