The Ross Family Mini Vacation

 Hiking is one of my all time favorite things to do, and Clint and I are taking four days next week to do just that! We will be heading to north Georgia to camp out at Enota Mountain Retreat. Enota is actually a sixty acre non-profit conservation facility. They're all about conservation (obviously), sustainability, and living lightly. They have an organic farm where you can pick your own produce, a restaurant that serves food made from their farm, over 300 animals (chickens, bunnies, goats, cows, horses, etc.), a trout pond, a fair trade gift shop, and more! Clint is awesome at finding things like this; he knows exactly the things I love and won't stop searching till it's just right. The most exciting part of the whole thing is all the hiking trails that are nearby. I've found eight trails I would like to hike, totaling about 36 miles in all. I don't think we'll quite make it to all of them :) Hopefully we'll get to borrow Clint's dad's camera and have lots of pictures to share when we get back. Until then, enjoy these preview photos from Enota's website.

OH! Would it be awkward if I joined you two?? :) That sounds so so perfect! I hope you two have the best time ever.

we just got back, we did three days of backpacking, and it was really exhausting, but fun. What a beautiful area it is out there liz! I didn't know you had a blog until brit commented on it on fbook :) so now i follow it too!! one of our dreams someday is to own land and have our own vegetable garden, pigs and chickens :) and with the rest of the land, jesse wants to build a mountain bike park! (of course, I want to live on a lake) ...and we try to buy organic/farmers mkt stuff whenever we can afford it, so it's fun to see how interested you are in all of it too :) hope your time away is fabtabuloso!!
