Head's Mill, ca.1852
White Hall Road
Hall County, Georgia
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Head’s Mill, also known as Healan’s Mill, is the last remaining gristmill in Hall County. Located on the North Oconee River in East Hall, the mill was built in 1852 by William Head. It operated for more than a century, using a river-powered water wheel to grind crops, manufacture shingles, gin cotton and turn timber into boards.
The mill was last remodeled during the Great Depression by then-owner F.H. Turner, who replaced its wooden water wheel and millrace with metal. By the end of WW II in 1945, however, the availability of electricity throughout rural Hall County, combined with a booming manufacturing economy and increased availability of store-bought dry goods, had all but eliminated demand for hydraulic power.
The mill is now owned by Hall County and is supposed to be renovated, although little progress has yet been made.

Khertvisi Fortress appears where the Mtkvari and Paravani Rivers meet. If you follow the valley behind the fortress in the photo here, you will eventually end up at the Vardzia Cave City.
Khertvisi Fortress is one of the oldest fortresses in Georgia, and was first built in the 2nd century BC. The present walls are built in 1354.

Just as the sun was setting, I looked behind me and saw THIS!)
...Not MY Georgia home (I wish).
This cabin sits in the middle of a 375 acre piece of land, overlooking two lakes and an amazing sunset.
This is the first of four shots from this area that I plan on uploading over the next few days. Check back tomorrow for more!
I'd been staring at this dock all week, wanting to get a sunset shot from it. Finally on my last night in Georgia I was treated to the spectacular sky I'd been hoping for.

this is the fall on Duke's Creek, right above it encountering Dukes Creek Falls (which is on Davis Creek actually, as it pours into Dukes Creek). Looking at topo maps, I actually can't tell if the creek here is called Dukes or Dodd--I've seen it listed as both. As confusing as the nomenclature is, it's a beautiful location, which I haven't visited in 4 years for some reason. After this, I visited the top of Dukes Creek Falls, which is a stunning location as well.
