Vacation in GA

Here's the highlights of the Georgia Vacation! Click a photo to enlarge.

A dragonfly - I must have taken this somewhere enroute to GA. 
David and Mom on the porch at the top of Brasstown Bald, the highest point in GA. David and I hiked up. I finally broke down and bought a walking stick, but at least I made it all the way up and back!
Mom, Scott, Matthew, Dad and David at the top of Brasstown Bald.
This was the coolest thing ever. A HUGE, like 5 foot, the biggest I ever saw, rattlesnake at the Brasstown Bald picnic area. I got video of him too but can't find my cord to upload. 
Mom, Dad, neighbor Zoe, Scott, Matthew and David at the end of a very long and fun day at the Atlanta Aquarium.

David and I took some kids on a nature walk. We didn't see many birds, but saw other neat stuff including this baby snake. The kids learned a lot from David and we all had a blast.
We also saw this fence lizard on the nature walk with the kids. 
We had a picnic at Kings Mountain in South Carolina, where we met up with Jill, India and Sasha. It was a tiny but wet and dark but you can't stop a Simpson from having fun. This is David and Matthew in the rain.

We finished up our picnic at a (much drier) McDonalds. This is Jill, India, Sasha, Matthew, David, Scott, Mom, and Dad.

Sasha and Matthew, wearing out poor David. Me, mom, and Jill had a bet which one of them would fall asleep first on the car ride home. I think Sasha won.
David and I stopped at the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge on the way home. This is a purple galinule who posed nice for me.
My little wild man.
