Get Muddy

As summer officially came to an end this week and the kids headed back to school for most of the country, one could easily assume playtime was over. WRONG! Hurricane Isaac has wrecked havoc on much of our southern Gulf Coast brethren, and it has dumped high humidity and high rainfall on the entire Southeast over the past week. For those outside the destructive zone, however, Isaac has given us one last gasp at the freedom of summer. Sure, you could use the weather as an excuse to spend your weekend inside watching a new batch of ski-movie trailers, but you don’t need a guide for that. Seize the last, fleeting straws of summer vacation and get outside.

Nothing epitomizes the innocence of childhood like a baby slapping their palms in a puddle or sticking a fist-full of mud into their mouth – at least, we hope it’s mud. Recapture this exuberance, hit the trail, and get muddy. Bike tires can rip up the trail, but shoes are much more forgiving. Hit the Jacks River Trail in the Cohutta Wilderness for some wet weather action.
