Cumberland Island

Steven and i are packing right now for travels... and some of our travels include taking the ferry to Cumberland Island, on the Atlantic Coast on the Georgia / Florida border, and backpacking across the island for several days. It is beautiful this time of the year, balmy during the day, and cool at night. The island is undeveloped and a former playground of some robber barons (the Carnegies? can't remember); one finds ruins of a huge mansion called Dungeoness there. The floor of sawgrass palmetto seems to go on to infinity in many areas, topped with a towering canopy of twisted, beautiful oak. First to Atlanta to visit friends and family!

The packs feel light without any water in them yet! Keep your fingers crossed we have dry, sunny, warm weather on the coast of Georgia. So far, i can see the weather channel's forecast 10 days out, which will be our first day there, and it is slated to be mostly sunny, 70 / 49 at night. Perfect.
