The Day I Hiked Inn

7.11.2012

July 11, 2012
You see what I did there? Maybe you don't. There's an actual place called the Hike Inn. 
Now you get it? Good.
Can I tell you about this amazing and beautiful place hidden in the magical mountains of Georgia? It's a lodge you can only hike into. Yea that's right. Hike only.
My mom and I hiked to this Heaven. Jealous? Yea, I know. We frolicked through the forest and came upon this. It opened up through the trees, I saw a glow around the lodge, and I'm pretty sure angels sang. 
The lodge is supposed to be eco-friendly. So one of the things they do is reuse mugs- everyone has to put their name on their mugs. They have family style dinners and breakfasts AND there are no electronics allowed. That means people actually have to talk. *GASP* Yes... they must talk.
I know what you're thinking: girl, you say whaaa??
But it was awe-to the-some. And it felt so good to hike that I just wanted to keep going on the Approach trail, hit the AT, and hike to Maine. My job wouldn't mind right?
Oh and one more thing... they had hummingbirds. Mind=blown. You're welcome.

Now, my mom would never do this with me. So your mom is clearly cooler then mine.

But this does have a bit of magic to it? doesn't it. And so long as you promise me the hike is not brutal, I promise you I would love to go there. Georgia. I could visit this place.

Sounds like lots of fun! Family style dinners are the best. When they don't include your own family. . .

What a fantastic idea! I would definitely hike to an inn, throw my cellphone away and talk to people!

And what a beautiful spot to do it.
