Fall Leaves

We visited the Birmingham Botanical Gardens today. Even though it is getting colder there were still flowers and tons of fall leaves. The gardens were really nice and I can't even imagine how beautiful they are in the spring.

The Atlanta Skyline

This picture was taken from the top of Stone Mountain. I thought the skyline of Atlanta looked amazing from here.

The Biltmore Estate

This is a picture of the Biltmore House from the Statue of Diana high on the hill. This view is incredible and I love the mountains in the background.

Biltmore at Christmas

Tonight we visited the Biltmore Estate for their Candlelight Celebration. This is a picture of the trees they put up outside near the fountain. The inside of the house was incredible with all the Christmas decorations.

Oak Lined Drive to Wormsloe

This oak lined drive leads to Wormsloe State Historic Site in Savannah. This reminded me of Oak Alley in Louisiana but with quite a few more trees. Oak Alley has 28 oaks and Wormsloe has over 400 oaks. It is truly a site to behold.

Graves: Colonial Park Cemetery

Today while touring the historic area of Savannah we ventured into Colonial Park Cemetery. These graves are actually partially buried, they have been covered up to block the entrance.

Angel Peak

On our way this morning we made a stop at Angel Peak Scenic Area. It was the perfect time - the sun was just rising above the horizon. It was a beautiful morning.
