OK, so we didn't really go to Germany. In August we really took a day trip into the mountains of Georgia, to a little spot known for looking like Germany....
In the late 1960’s, Helen was revitalized from a remote mountain community into a replica of a quaint Alpine Village located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
We have visited Helen, GA many times and we always enjoy taking in the little German town...only a couple of hours from our home, a mini vacation.
On our way to Helen, Ga we passed by this place...
Goats on the Roof
This was truly a sight to see, well if your city folk ;)
You can see more pictures of them at this YouTube link.
The model railroad museum was our next stop.....
you can see more here
It was amazing all the tiny details, truly nothing was overlooked. We spent almost 2 hours there watching the trains pass by, it was fascinating to see all the locations, events, and imagination that went into this display.
This was a replica of Neuschwanstein Castle, the history behind this famous castle is so interesting and you often see it used in books and magazines.
You can see one of the trains going through in this picture.
These are just a few of the pictures we took while touring, you can see more HERE on there web site!
We had a great little day trip here. It was very hot that day so we ended our trip at the frozen yogurt shop :)
