The backpacking trip I missed

Some of my friends went backpacking this past weekend. My backpack got to go, but I did not. I had an insufferable amount of work to do for grad school and I had to be at work all weekend anyway. They were kind enough to send me some pictures, so I could at least share a little joy. So I am sharing them with you. They hiked in an area in north Georgia called the Cohutta Wilderness. The trail they did led them through 18 river crossings and up several miles of extremely rocky terrain. I am so jealous.

At the top of the falls

Diana, Sarah, Tara, and Stuart. See that back pack over to the right, leaning against the tree? That's my pack! A little part of me went along with them =)

Sarah all dried off

Trail winds along the falls, all the way to the top

This IS the fucking trail!
