Hiking at Pickett's Mill

So, the philosopher and I went for a hike at Pickett's Mill Battlefield a few weeks ago.  It was a lovely day, and I got to try out my Easter shoes (the most comfy leather hiking boots EVER)!


 These two are of Pumpkinvine Creek, on which the old mill used to stand.  It was amazing seeing all the Civil War history that surrounds the area.  It's also hard to believe that our house sits in an area that was part of a huge battle.  (Pickett's Mill is only about 5 miles from our house in New Hope/Dallas.)

There's something wonderful about a spring day in Georgia.  The sky is blue, and there's a verdant smell in the air.  Of course, in the back of your mind you know that summer is on its way, with its terrible heat and humidity.  So I'll take all the spring days I can, and enjoy each and every one of them!

I enjoyed my visit there with Greg at Christmas. Hope to return to walk the trail.
