This weekend we headed to Amicalola state park. This park is just gorgeous! I have been wanting to go to this waterfall since I saw a fellow blogger post about it. I actually forgot about it until The Husband saw it while searching for water falls the weekend prior after we went to Anna Ruby Falls in Helen, Georgia. We decided to go ahead and make the trip out there. I wish the trip had gone better though.
The park is beautiful. You have a lot of beautiful photo opportunities. The water is absolutely amazing. You have to just take it all in. We started up the path to the waterfall. The whole way up you have a gorgeous view. It actually keeps you motivated to keep going. Amicalola Falls is a site to see.
I was wanting to make it to the top. I really wanted to climb those 604 stairs. Unfortunately I made a major mistake. I didn’t eat or drink anything. As I climbed the path I started losing my breath and my heart started racing. I thought I was going to pass out. So I sat down and got my bearings together. I got my breathing and heart rate under control. Then I started climbing again. We made it to the stairs and we climbed about 160 before my breathing and heart rate started speeding up again. I unfortunately ruined the whole trip because I didn’t take precautions that I should have taken. So it was an epic fail for me. I am so angry about this. I was also embarrassed because I feel like I should have made that climb. This goes to the fact that I need to get in better shape. Nonetheless we enjoyed what we did see. I hope that we get to go back and I get to conquer those steps. I’m just really not happy that I didn’t make it to the top. I know that Amicalola State Park isn’t going anywhere so I will be back.
If you want to visit Amicalola State Park it is located in Dawsonville, Georgia.
