Cloudland Canyon

I live in Lafayette, GA, which is a tiny little city in the northwest part of the state. It might not be the most exciting place -- the population is less than 7,000 people, most of the land is inhabited by cows, and there are no liquor sales in the entire county (which means my roommates and I have to do like Stevo and Heroin Bob in SLC Punk and take a forty-minute road trip if we ever want liquor) -- but I truly love living here. Northwest Georgia is beautiful. One of my favorite places in the world is Cloudland Canyon State Park, which is in this town called Rising Fawn, GA. Cloudland Canyon has a two-mile hiking trail that leads down to a waterfall. Some of my roommates and I go to the waterfall whenever we feel the need to get away from home for a while.

Here are some pictures Willy and I took with my thrifted Ansco 1065 camera the first time I went to Cloudland Canyon with Willy and Brett. I didn't expect the pictures to come out all crazy like this (with the light and color effects), but I'm pleased with how they look.


  1. These pictures are fantastic.

    Also, Cloudland Canyon? Rising Fawn? What beautiful names!

    1. Thank you!
      I love the names up here. There's a little place near Cloudland Canyon called "Hidden Hollow," and there's another town fairly close called "Pigeon Mountain."
