We had about a dozen people exploring the trails at the Whitewater Creek trailhead in the Chattahoochee River National Recreation area last Saturday. It was steamy, but nice under the shade of all those big leaf magnolias.
Up next- Saturday, July 11th (note: this is the 2nd saturday b/c of July 4th) we'll hike a section of the Beltine from the WestEnd Marta station to Piedmont Hospital. Once again Angel Poventud (Beltline volunteer and former train conductor) will be our fearless leader. It will be HOT, so bring lots of water and a hat... maybe even an umbrella for shade if you want.
Pix from our last hike:
