Alpine Helen, White County GA
We took a ride about 2 hours north last week to go hiking. We fell upon this unique alpine village nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains on the Chattahoochee River. This little tourist trap in the middle of nowhere was filled with people. They had German restaurants, wineries and many specialty shops along with the "alpine look" of the buildings and hotels. I made a few purchases in the homemade candle store and the Nora Mill Granary that had stone ground whole grains. We did the wine tasting at the Habersham Winery and visited the Nacoochee Village Antique Mall. It was a nice little discovery for us on our way to the trails.
