Trail Dames Hike ~ Vickery Creek Trail

Yesterday I joined the Trail Dames for another hiking adventure. Vickery Creek Trail is located in Roswell, Georgia. The creek formed on the property of a mixed-blood Cherokee woman named Vickery. Sadly she was forced to move west with the rest of the Cherokee nation on the forced march know as the “Trail of  Tears”. The creek name is her lasting legacy.

The weather was cool and comfortable and the trail was a moderate 6.3 mile loop. I enjoyed the laughter and conversations along the trail and after the hike, I joined a group of Dames for lunch at Chaplain’s in Roswell Mill. I carried my Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L on this hike. I have been using this lens on hikes lately so I have the ability to zoom out for group shots. It is a bit heavier to carry around but very versatile for hiking.

Hello there! A fellow Dame was kind enough to snap this photo so I could be included in this group shot. There I am, sitting on the right side of the bench, wearing my Trail Dames t-shirt!

It’s all good. ~ Donna
