Park Hopping: Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area Jones Bridge Unit

I am hoping this is the start of a series of posts on our visits to local (and maybe not so local) parks.  I want to enjoy the outdoors with our kids this summer, so my sister and I have decided to try to visit a different park every week throughout the summer.  I don't know if we will manage every week, but we will certainly try!  So last week, I ventured out alone with my 6 (wow, do I really have that many!) kids to explore the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area (CRNRA) to see the ruins of Jones Bridge.  The kids and I loved the "hike".  It was mostly flat and followed the river.  Even Mercy (2.5) walked and ran along side her siblings.

This is/was Jones Bridge.  Apparently, "workers" came and stole the metal from half the bridge before anyone realized they weren't supposed to be there!

This was the steepest part of our hike.

Of course, climbing on the rocks is the best part!

My children didn't understand why this sign was necessary.  :)

I just love the fog over the river!  It is so beautiful!
