ATTENTION!!! PHOTOGRAPHERS AND MEMBERS WHO ARE INTERESTED IN PHOTOGRAPHY, PLEASE COME AND JOIN US!!! After leading many hikes, Ive met quite a bit of professional and amatueur hikers, but most of the time we were rushed and didnt have enough ime to take good pictures, so here is an opportunity to spend time creating a beautiful photography.

All partcipants must have some sort of still cameras, digital, film, disposable, or your $8,000 camera... well be taking the pictures and critiqing it to pick the 3 best from each category (B&W, Macro World, Solitude, and Happiness) everyone can show 1 photograph for each categories, I guess well let the othe AOC members as a judges at November Social, so after taking the photos, review it carefully.

Now as for trails, Keown falls is a small fall, it shows up when there is a rain water, some times I see it with a lot of water, and some days small tinkles of water... it has nice rock formations and wild lifes, one thing I gave to worn you, that there is a massive amount of Poision Ivy and Poison Oak in this area, it maybe wise to wear pants if you are allergic to them. and being in Georgia, there is always of chance of meeting Rattle snakes, water moccasin, and copper heads, so please be very careful when you get in to the bushes...

Well be having a pre-trip meeting on Friday November 11th, at La Madeline off Powers Ferry Rd near Windy Hill in Cobb County at 7:00pm
