STATE BOTANICAL GARDENS OF GEORGIA


  While Wes and I were in Athens for the day we stopped in at the State Botanical Gardens of Georgia.  The gardens are open to the public and admission is free.  You have the option to donate upon arrival, and the suggested donation per person is $2.  Completely worth it for the trip and what they have on display.  Not only do they have a large indoor and outdoor display of herbs, regional flowers, and plants from around the globe, but there are also several hiking paths around the property to explore.  
  Wes and I hiked a bit on the White Trail before heading into the Visitor's Center and through the gardens.  The hike was nice because it was primarily shaded and not too stressing.  There wasn't all too much signage on the paths which was an initial disappointment, but once we got used to the fact that we were on our own and not going to learn much about the local vegetation it was a really pleasant walk.  I'd say it's worth it if you've got the extra time available.  I hope you enjoy some of the photos I took while we wandered around and took in the sights and smells!
