It’s Friday, and if the weather holds (it’s come up a cloud all day), I plan a camping trip to Chattahoochee Bend State Park, near Carrollton, Ga.
The park is across the river from county where I live, Carroll, and is the newest of Georgia’s state parks. It covers almost 3,000 acres and has camping spots, fishing and access to the river for boaters.
I’m going to be heading to a traditional developed camping site and hit a hiking trail or two. The place has more than six miles of trails, which are great for nature photography, a particular passion of mine. I can’t wait to climb the observation platform for a full view of the river and forested area.
Don’t bother trying to contact me. I’m taking my camera and pushing down on my cellphone off button.
