Altamaha Gordonia

In all honestly this really doesn't deserve to be on bnoutdoors as there was nothing extreme about it, nor is there any lick of hiking short of walking around a lake, but it was interesting enough in terms of biodiversity to throw up here, as we collectively share interest in nature.  Altamaha Gordonia receives its name from the swampy Altamaha river adjacent, and the rare Gordonia tree, either once previously or currently located near here.  I stopped over here on the weekend to have a quick place to stay on the way to visit my sister over in Hinesville, GA at Ft. Stewart.  My son and I went and decided to spend the night here in the tent, and it was notable in my memory, as the first spanish moss filled,  swamp camping I've ever done, though, guaranteed not to be my last as I deeply desire to have the Altamaha River basin actual, and the Okeefenokee swamp on the list.  Big nuts tilt will definitely get raised sleeping with wild gators in the area.

 
 
Standing Indian Wilderness Area

According to Cherokee mythology, Standing Indian Mountain is the remains of a warrior who turned to stone because he failed to remain at his post. This Indian warrior had been sent to the mountaintop to keep a lookout for the winged monster which came from the sky and stole children. The winged monster was captured and then the Great Spirit destroyed the monster with thunder and lightning. However, because the Indian warrior became afraid and ran away from his post, he was turned to stone for his cowardice. The Cherokee called Standing Indian Mountain Yunwitsule-nunyi, which means "where the man stood."
