A nice couple decided to help us out with the picture since we had taken about six with the timer - haha. After the reservoir we headed up 19N and then onto the 9s towards Suches. I've always called it "The 9s" due to a large exposed rock face off to the right that was used for climbing and rappelling in college. We stopped at two overlooks, and we took some more pictures....
After heading down the mountain towards Suches and taking yet some more pictures, we headed back to Dahlonega for a late lunch at Wylie's. Sadly, Wylie's is no longer :( As we walked up to the Conner House, we noticed that it looked dead. I told Andrew, "I wonder if they're closed between lunch and dinner?" But the stark reality hit us when we didn't see a sign that said, "Wylie's." We walked over to Piazza for lunch where our waitress told us that she heard they went bankrupt. So sad. We had so many good memories of Wylie's from college and then Andrew and I.
After Piazza, we drove out to Chestatee Wildlife Preserve whose gates closed twenty minutes prior, and we headed to Cavender's Creek to see our cabin for the day before the wedding and our wedding night before heading up to Sky Valley for a week. We met Paul Hanson, the owner of Cavender's Creek, who was kind enough to allow us to drive around the cabin loop and find our cabin. Deep in the woods, beside the creek is our cabin, and in a little less than a year, we will be staying there as husband and wife.
By that time, it was close to five, and we headed back to Powder Springs. Even though one of our favorite lunch spots had closed, it was a great day.
