Sharing Vacation Photos From Pine Mountain Georgia

There's just something about a beaten pathway that calls me to come and explore... Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain Georgia with all of it's pretty wooded trails to walk through... is a wonderful place to visit and to take in the beauty of nature, everything is so green there.... 


 My husband and I spent several days on a vacation getaway to Pine Mountain recently, so I wanted to share some pictures from our trip! We spent a day of our trip in Callaway Gardens....walking  trails....








This little stone bridge stole my heart....





We found a beautiful stone Chapel with pretty stain glass windows ....




Behind the chapel was a rocky stream ...with a tiny water fall....


Along another trail, we found a primitive cabin in the woods....






This pathway below leads to the Cecil B. Day Butterfly Conservatory...




There were butterflies fluttering around everywhere....even though you wouldn't know any were present from looking at my pictures.... I was lucky enough to capture some on several videos....




These displays of framed butterflies were inside the building....

On our trip to Pine Mountain, we also spent a day in the Franklin D. Roosevelt State Park .....




You can't tell it much from the photos, but there was some elevation here at the pull-off areas where these pictures were taken....we took these as we drove the scenic road through the State Park....



We started the day early with a hike on the Pine Mountain Trail...(we had intentions of going on the 2 mile hike to Cascade Falls, a round trip 4 mile hike)
After a short drive along the scenic road inside the park we found the trail head entrance....
 The trail started out level and wide...

And the further we got in there, it became more and more narrow, winding, and in some places very rocky with a small creek nearby....

We had to cross over a couple of shallow creeks...



 .



We ended up hiking a 2 mile round trip to Csonka Falls, (a smaller waterfall than Cascade Falls, the one we were originally going to hike to). We decided to head on back, after Csonka Falls, because to be honest, the trails were kickin' our, (used to the Florida flat land) booties, and plus we wanted to  have time to still drive to Warm Springs,Ga. to explore, eat lunch and do some shopping there.






 We finished our hike... and got back to the car... where the winding roads of the State Park, took us to the quaint and charming small town of Warm Springs Georgia...I loved this little town!



We ate at the Bulloch House Restaurant (above), they had a buffet, and it was so busy that you had to take a number and wait to be seated. After getting our food, we could see why it was so popular with locals and tourists alike....they had the best country home style food....they even had fried green tomatoes!

Across the street was the Historic Hotel Warm Springs, there was a Candy and Ice Cream Shop inside...we had to get some fudge,  (sorry for the blurry photo,it's the only one I got)...



We walked around the town and went in all of the unique shops that lined the town...we even found an antique store that we plundered around in.....
I almost forgot to share with you a picture that I took in the actual town of Pine Mountain Georgia (below) ....it was the first town we explored, it was small and charming like Warm Springs....there were cute shops with cute names. This gift shop that I did get a picture of was called "Sugah Candy" (and it was meant to be spelled this way). I wish I had taken more pictures of the town...I kept thinking I'd get some later, then I didn't....

Well, it was a nice little getaway for us....it's fun to get away for a few days, to see something new and do something different! It's always nice to come back home too, because after all, you know there really is no place like home, is there?

I hope you enjoyed coming along with us on our trip!
