So dust off your cameras and lace up your hiking boots and check out some of state's 48 parks including those just outside metro Atlanta area like Panola Mountain, Sweetwater Creek, Red Top Mountain, Etowah Indian Mounds and Fort Yargo State Park.
State Park Director Becky Kelley said that North Georgia's mountains are a spectacular place to see Mother Nature's handiwork and that Georgia's state parks attract visitors from across the southeastern United States.
"But I like to remind people that southern Georgia has some beautiful fall color as well," she said. "Cypress and tupelo trees can be found in parks such as Reed Bingham."
