New Manchester Mill Ruins, Georgia

Heavy rainfall this week filled Sweetwater Creek, overflowing onto the trail, as you can see below. Try to spot Murphy on the trail! He didn't mind the water, but I personally decided to walk through the woods to prevent the ol' soggy boot.

This mill was destroyed during the Civil War. The mill workers were forced off the land and relocated great distances; much like the Cherokee, who were forced off this land just a few decades prior.

Can someone help identify this tree based on the bark?

Sweetwater Creek, which eventually flows into the Chattahoochee River
