Next stop Red Top Mountain which is a state park about 40 miles outside of Atlanta. I have no idea why it is called Red Top, maybe the leaves turn red in the fall? By the time we found the park (after making a huge circle and just missing the entrance), it had stopped raining. This was our first visit and while most of the activities center around the lake and river, they did have a couple of hiking trails. Off we went on the yellow loop, transferred to the red loop, and ended on the white loop where the river meets the lake.
It sprinkled a bit, but, overall was a beautiful morning spent in the woods and sitting by the water, a welcome departure from the weeds that still need attention at the house.
