Hiking to that beautiful dulcimer sound...
A couple weekends ago Beau and I decided to go for a hike. It was such a hot morning that we wanted to try and find a trail that would veer down by a lake so if we got too warm we would be able to hop in and go for a dip.
We ended up at Red Top Mountain. Their Homestead Trail leads down by Lake Allatoona and sounded gorgeous. We packed a picnic lunch and hit the trail. The trail was great and the lake was the perfect temperature. There was so much boat activity bringing in waves that Frankie got a bit nervous. She had a great time up on the shore though and as always, she loved the hike!
After our hike we headed over to the Lodge where they had a dulcimer jam session going on, sounds silly but it was actually very cool. A group called, get this, The Allatooners! It was such a beautiful and peaceful sound. We'll definitely be heading to Red Top again soon!
