Sunday Snaps 6 - A Town Called Helen

Over at From a Yellow House, Dori has posted many a photo of our travels around Wiltshire and other parts of England. So I thought it was high time that I did the reverse and posted some pictures of Georgia, taken during my visits over there.

These snaps are of a small town called Helen in the Blue Ridge Mountains in North-East Georgia. As you can see, Helen is a recreation of a Bavarian Alpine town. It felt quite surreal when I first went there to find this little piece of Europe thousands of miles away!




It even comes complete with it's own windmill.



Helen is a cute little town, which I enjoyed visiting tremendously.

I was really surprised when I saw Helen featured on your site. My husband and I have been to this enchanting little village many times. I really love North Georgia. . .not only is it peaceful but beautiful as well! I'm sure you and Dori had a wonderful time there. :-)

I miss home! As a displaced southern girl from Georgia, seeing pictures of Helen makes me pine for home- I love these, thanks!

I'm glad you liked the pictures. I have yet to visit Vermont, but I know it is also a very beautiful part of the world.
