Our Day in Helen

Yesterday we made it to Helen for Oktoberfest. It was a beautiful drive and on the way we stopped at the site where the 1996 Summer Olympics Whitewater Slalom competition was held. In the pictures, the water looks normal but I'm sure it gets pretty wild.
We got to Helen around noon and had lunch and walked around. It is definitely a neat place to visit and I think we may try to go back next year and spend some more time there. Unfortunately, a lot of the places to stay were booked. We'll have to plan better for next year. There were a lot of cute little shops and different places to eat. We went to one place called The Troll Tavern to have a drink. It was a restaurant under a bridge near a creek. Definitely a great name for this place. I just thought that was the neatest thing. We spent a few hours in Helen and then we headed back home. Here are a few pictures we took of our day.
