Botanist Gathering 5/8-10 in Dahlonega

9 Apr
Come stay with us and attend the annual Georgia Botanical Society’s Spring WildflowerCypripedium acaule Pilgrimage in Dahlonega May 8-10.
The 2015 pilgrimage marks the 46th year of the annual celebration of Georgia’s rich assortment of native flora, some of the most diverse in the nation. During the three-day event, botanists both amateur and professional will fan out in several “field trips” from Dahlonega to explore a variety of mountain habitats — from stream banks crowded with mountain laurel and rhododendron to blue-shrouded vistas of high altitude granite outcrops.
Most of the habitats are north of Dahlonega within the 750,000-acre Chattahoochee National Forest, Georgia’s largest public land preserve. A few are at altitudes nearly 4,000 feet.
Some field trips will be to destinations with familiar names — Woody Gap, Lake Winfield Scott and Jarrard Gap, Sosebee Cove and Dawson Forest. Others will be to lesser-known spots, such as a hike to the beautiful Raven Cliff Falls.
In addition to enjoying some of Georgia’s most breathtaking natural scenery, participants expect to see a profusion of blooming wildflowers that are botanical highlights of the central mountains during early May — pink lady’s slipper; small and large yellow lady’s slipper; several mid-season trillium species, including the painted trillium; nodding mandarin; May-apple and wood betony.
The pilgrimage’s Friday and Saturday evening events include a social with book signings and a talk about the geology and natural communities of the Dahlonega region.
The Georgia Botanical Society sponsors a wildflower pilgrimage every spring to a different and interesting part of the state. Last year’s event was headquartered in Waycross and focused on the Okefenokee Swamp. “The Pilgrimage is one of Georgia Botanical Society’s most popular offerings,” said Heather Brasell, Vice President and coordinator of this year‘s pilgrimage event.

Ultra-marathon Race thru the Mountains 3/14/2015

12 Feb

This years event is already sold out but we thought we would share this with our past and potential guests that may want to particpate next year (registration begins in September).

The Georgia Death Race which will 68 miles from Vogel State Park to Amicalola Falls. Race begins at 5am March 14, 2015.

The Georgia Death Race is a point-to-point ultramarathon trail race in North Georgia. The race is 68ish miles with close to 40,000 feet of elevation change, starting at Vogel State Park and finishing at Amicalola Falls State Park. Starting the race at 5:00 a.m. allows runners of all speeds to be on top of Duncan Ridge on the Duncan Ridge Trail for the sunrise. From here you will see the sun rise over the back of Brasstown Bald, the highest point in Georgia. With the leaves off the trees the sunrise will light up the surrounding mountains and valleys that make up Northern Georgia. This, in it self, makes it worth it to run the race. The first 8 miles has close to 3,500 feet of elevation change. Including the 2,300 ft climb over 3.8 miles up to the summit of Coosa Bald.

Other course highlights include views from random points along the trail of mountains as far as you can see, the Toccoa Swinging Bridge, Amicalola Falls, the remote Benton Mackaye and Duncan Ridge Trails, and a beautiful wide open field with close to unobstructed views of the mountains some 37 miles in. Not to mention this race is hard as nails.
While the point of the race is for it to be hard, the real reason for this race is to showcase the North Georgia Mountain trails as well as create an experience that you will never forget. The sheer beauty of this race masks the difficulty of the terrain.

Included in the entry fee are 10 fully stocked aid stations in the middle of no where, a 68 mile point to point course, a unique t-shirt, some photos (if our photographers take photos of you), a Death Race Spike (only if you finish), hot meal (catered) and warm place to hang out/crash at the finish (at group shelter #3), and everything else that comes with doing a 68 mile course in the mountains.
