Flora, Georgia, Blue Ridge Mountains, Rabun County

The Walhalla topographic quadrangle of the United States Geological Survey shows, in Rabun County, Georgia, a circle of high ridges southwest of Rabun Bald inclosing the valley of Mill Creek. The creek is better known as Darnell Creek, and that names appears on other maps. My wife had visited the creek several times during a vacation at Dillard in 1944, and from her I learned of the splendid waterfalls and unspoiled forests to be seen in the valley.
