This last weekend we met up with my friend and her family for a visit to Fort Mountain State Park. We picked this park because it was a pretty close midpoint between her home near Atlanta and our home near Murfreesboro. We drove up the winding roads of the mountain with incredible views through the trees of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We decided on a shorter walk around the lake where kids, dogs, and grown ups could easily walk then followed up the walk with a picnic. The day was a little gloomy with rain clouds above us. But because of that, there was mist coming off from the lake which gave the whole place an otherworldly feel to it. But because of the looming rain, we stayed pretty close and didn’t really explore the many trails that this park offers. We are already planning another meet up here so we can see more of the beautiful mountains.
