The weather was starting to cool off and we finished our convention obligations, so finally, YAY time to go hiking again! We woke up late and decided to go up Kennesaw Mountain, since we hadn’t done that trail since winter. It was a fun hike and we decided to extend it over Little Kennesaw Mountain as well. Having been a while, the trip was pretty challenging. Maybe our eyes were bigger than our feet, but we got some great pictures!
We hadn’t done much hiking this summer due to the heat, but decided one afternoon to try a different part of Kennesaw State Park (since it’s close by). Overall, it ended up being a pretty flat hike where we walked past lots of battlefields. We even saw a deer in part of the woods. The view from the Illinois memorial is beautiful, overlooking the sprawling battlefield. Even though it was hot, the park has some nice scenery.
We lucked out and had another beautiful day to take advantage of the weather. We decided to hike up Kennesaw Mountain with our friends Lee and Carlton. The views from the top are beautiful and you can even see Atlanta, Buckhead and Dunwoody. Also we could even see Stone Mountain. Absolutely a lovely hike and it wasn’t too bad but a bit of a workout.
