October 27, 2020 & a Flashback to 2005
USA map showing location of GeorgiaGeorgia map showing location of Ada-Hi Falls

Ada-Hi Falls (pronounced Uh-dah`'he) is 35-feet tall and located on Taylor Creek within Black Rock Mountain State Park in Rabun County, Georgia, United States. The name is Cherokee for "forest." It is the highest elevation waterfall in the state. The amount of water present is highly variable due to its high elevation. The falls are surrounded by a forest of rhododendron. A short, yet steep hike, ends at an observation deck. The Adi-Hi Falls Trail in Georgia is rated as moderate, and should be trekked from March until November for the best and safest weather conditions.

The two RV Gypsies walked down about 200 steps to get to Ada-Hi Falls in Black Rock Mountain State Park, Georgia. When they finally reached the viewing platform, they enjoyed the views of the 35-foot tall waterfall. Since they were obviously outside, and did not meet any other people on the hike, Karen had her Coronavirus mask around her wrist in case they did get near people. But after hiking back up the trail and up the 200+ stairs again, Karen realized she had lost her mask when she put her walking stick down on the viewing platform to take pictures. At the top of the stairs, she met a family and asked them if they would be willing to bring her mask up to her when they finished their hike because the mask is required when around people. So the two RV Gypsies sat in their car and ate their picnic lunch until the kind people came back with her mask. Karen had been worried that they would not want to touch the mask, but the man had carried it by the straps. Thank you kind strangers.
