CHATTAHOOCHEE – OCONEE NATIONAL FOREST
The drive from Arkansas to Cherokee/North Carolina through the National Forest was absolutely beautiful. The forest was dense with the road weaving its way between a high cliff covered with ferns with occasional small waterfalls and Oconee River rapidly running on the other side. This area must be very popular in the summer as there were numerous white water rafting adventure businesses all along the way. We stopped over in Cherokee for a couple of days waiting out the rain to stop before we continued on to Virginia.
