Overlook at Tallulah Gorge


I had something sad and tragic happen today on a road trip with my bride

We stopped at our favorite little store on a lonely little mountain roadside


This little store has been a fixture for thousands that have been stopping there for years

Remembering sitting in the rocking chair with moon pie and RC brings back such happy tears


We have always stopped at this special  hidden place in Georgia for over 40 years of our life

Why we have been making this sacred  stop with our daughter way more than once or twice


When we made our special daughter and daddy trip home for her to become a bride

The first thing that she asked to do was to stop at the gorge with me there by her side


Tragically this piece of history, like so many others, will now just fade away

Because the owner of the land has told them that the store must move away


It is more than just shutting the door on this little run down roadside country store

It’s closing the door on memories created that will last our children for evermore


I know that progress is something that cannot be slowed and ahead we must forge

But it doesn’t make any easier to watch the dying of the Overlook at Tallulah Gorge


From My World to Yours,

Bob Baker
