Get out and go

Spring might be my favorite season. After a ceaseless winter with gray skies and not a hint of green in sight, colorful flowers begin to make their appearance forecasting warmer weather ahead.

And although our spring came early this year and our winter wasn't very cool, it still is a sense of excitement for me. Now, I can hang the jacket in the closet, roll out of bed in the mornings without worrying about the cold hardwood floor touching my feet and toss the layers of clothing to the side.

It's also a chance for me to get out and do some outdoor activities, and luckily, Georgia's landscape offers its residents almost every outdoor activity you can imagine.

From kayaking to rockclimbing to caving, Covington residents can get their adventure fix relatively cheaply and no more than a two-hour car ride away.

Recently, my brother and I started out the season with a trip to Pigeon Mountain in LaFayette to rock-climb at a well-known climbers spot called "Rock Town."

For those who are not climbers it's still a neat place to visit and about a two-hour drive from Covington. Rock Town has several acres filled with large sandstone boulders and multiple paths for people to walk and enjoy an afternoon surrounded by unique rock formations.
