Heidi’s brother Kenny drove up from St. Pete to join Trey and me for a trip to the Smokies. We were headed to visit our college buddy Jerry Span who was celebrating his 30th birthday. On the way up we stopped at the remote Vogel State Park to stretch our legs and recover a bit from the insanely windy roads (that bit north of Dahlonega is nuts!). The weather had been overcast and rainy but when we stopped the skies cleared up just long enough for us to enjoy the mountain scenery.
Trey would have spent all day at the putt-putt course but we walked the mile-long nature trail that loops around the lake. Highlights for Trey were the “gooses” and their babies and the man who had caught two trout.
