On Valentine's Day, my sister and I took a day trip to North Georgia to explore and hike a little bit. I had the day off of work, my love was ice fishing in Minnesota, and I hadn't had much one-on-one time with Court lately so it worked out perfectly! We drove an hour and a half north, stopping for a coffee break on the way to talk and to check out a new coffee shop.
The snow that remained from the latest winter storm made the scenery on the drive up even more beautiful! It also kept most people from venturing out to the state park and we had the place to ourselves most of the time. The path up to the falls was still icy and slippery in some places and we had fun trying not to slip as we slowly made our way up.
After hiking, we stopped for an early dinner at a tasty little burger joint in Dahlonega before heading up to watch the sunset. It was cloudy so the view of the sunset was minimal but the view of the snow covered mountains was gorgeous. Snow in the South is such a rare occurrence and I'm glad that Courtney and I took a day to drive up and adventure through it a little bit!
It was also sweet to be able to spend a good amount of time with my sister. Our schedules don't often match up with work, school, and a thirty minute drive between us. I'm thankful that we had a day to ourselves!
