Every year during Christmas break Brandon and his brother, Russell, go on a hike with their aunt and uncles, which I think is a wonderful and special tradition.
This year I got up early to drive them to their drop-off location, which was near Springer Mountain near the Nimblewill community of Lumpkin county, which is where I grew up.
They did a 9 mile hike to Amicalola Falls on the Appalachian Trail.
Brandon has a goal of hiking the entire AT by doing sections at a time.
Beauregard was great on the trail from what everyone said!
Aunt Joy, Brandon, Uncle Randall, Russell, Uncle Kelly, and John.
