I love trees. And fall. The two together are pretty much the best things ever. In California we don't experience the changing of the leaves in the same way that the East coast does, so when I moved to Tennessee for college, I fell in love with the changing colors. In Charleston, we still have trees but fall isn't quite the same as it was in Tennessee. I was super excited to get to see the beginning of the trees changing while we were in Georgia at the beginning of October!
One afternoon Michael and I drove out to Lake Zwerner to hike around a trail that we'd heard from Michael's parents was super beautiful. We didn't end up making it all the way around the lake because we were too busy taking photos of EVERYTHING and challenging each other to capture difficult shots just for fun. (Plus, Dad had offered to take us out for pizza - my favorite - so we had a time limit on our outing.) I definitely want to go back and walk the full trail when we return to Georgia for Thanksgiving.
Lake Zwerner (whose name I constantly have to check the spelling of) is also called Yahoola Creek Reservoir and the views are stunning. There were so many tree, plant and tiny critter types around. Plenty of park benches to help break up the hike if you get tired, and the mix of changed, changing, and still green leaves around us was perfect for the beginning of fall. There were several other people - quite a few with their pups - walking along the trail or even sitting along the edge of the water admiring the view, but it was never crowded, either. If you're in the area, I'd definitely say it's worth checking out!
