For those of you who don't know, I am an avid explorer. Nothing makes me happier than being outside. I've mentioned it briefly in videos and posts before, but I don't think I've ever brought you guys on one of my adventures. I had originally planned to film an "Explore With Me" video about my hike, but I think I am waiting until I get a GoPro for that.
Today, I hiked up the Sawnee Mountain Preserve in Cumming, Georgia, otherwise known as Indian Seats. The view was gorgeous, and so worth the hike!! I recommend bringing a camera to best capture the amazing view, you can easily see the Blue Ridge mountains. Plan time to sit on the mountain to take it all in. On a day with a clear sky, you can easily see far-off landmarks and distinctly see all the cars traveling on the countryside. To get to the top of the mountain, it is a 3.2 mile loop. This destination can be hard to find if you don't have a good address; I used: 4075 Spot Rd, Cumming, GA 30040. If you're ever in the area, I highly recommend stopping by.
Blessed are the curious for they shall have adventures
Dutch Monkey Dougnhnuts
How cute is this doughnut shop?! I had recalled reading about this doughnut shop in an article about Georgia's best donut shops and had to stop by when I realized how close we were; it's about 15 minutes from Indian Seats. If you're looking for other things to do in the area, The Collection at Forsyth is right across the street. The Collection is a small shopping center with some great stores including American Threads, Dress Up Boutique, and Altar'd State.
Let me know what you guys think of these posts! I plan to start doing them more often. Also, if you've ever done any hiking in Georgia, let me know your favorite trails and places I should check out.
