Scott Stapp on The Space Between the Shadows Tour with Special Guests Messer and Sunflower Dead – Decatur, Georgia – 09/30/2019

Ah, if only 20 year old me would have seen this night coming!

Oconee Farmers’ Market – Watkinsville, Georgia – 09/28/2019

We’re still trying to spend as much time as we can getting acquainted with Athens and North Georgia based Farmers’ Markets and Produce Markets.

We always make our rounds and then strategize our purchases. We decided on some more heirloom eggplant, in both white and purple; and some…

NWR: List of National Wildlife Refuges in Alphabetical Order By State

Many, although not all, National Wildlife Refuges also offer Junior Ranger Programs with which you can earn a series of badges unique to the NWR System. Another fun activity within National Wildlife Refuge locations, is collecting stamps in…
