High Falls State Park Celebration

William and Trey get their photo taken with Becky Kelley, director of Georgia's State Parks, and Tom Mills with his the "family on the go"To celebrate our having visited all of Georgia’s State Parks & Historic sites within a year, we had a cookout at High Falls State Park and invited all our Georgia friends. Heidi friends from work came, my camera club friends attended, our buddies from church showed up, and even some old friends from our college years at Carson-Newman College were there!

The biggest surprise was Becky Kelley, director of Georgia’s State Parks, showed up with her husband and a family that visited 30 parks in 30 days last year. She presented me with some State Park swag and made me an official volunteer.

William Haun and his 2 year-old son Trey visited all 63 of Georgia's State Parks and Historic Sites from July 2008 to July 2009.It was a fun time of hanging out with friends and enjoying the park’s facilities. Some folks explored the falls to take photos, the kids all enjoyed the playground, and a few others went hiking down along the water. At the end of the day we were all exhausted and had way too much leftover food to take home.
