Lee & Carol - You have a great area to promote.  I've rafted the Ocoee and it's quite a treat.

Hi Rebecca. I haven't been back to the Basin Museum since Brandon was in middle school, but it was so interesting and I always enjoy the old photographs and mining tools. Trail after trail - you never run out of things to do.
