Valhalla Resort Hotel at Innsbruck in Helen is a luxury all-suite retreat that opened in mid-July. My husband and I were married in the North Georgia Mountains six years ago and come back every anniversary to visit the wineries and take in the mountains and fall foliage. For our recent 6-year anniversary, we were hosted by Valhalla and couldn’t have asked for a better weekend, with all the leaves bursting in color, luxurious accommodations, and an ideal location.
On Aug. 21 at 2:35 p.m., the wind will pick up, temps will drop significantly, birds will roost and the world will prepare for sunset in the middle of the day. Stars will pop out and you may even catch a glimpse of Mercury! We all have a unique opportunity to see a total eclipse when the moon will completely block the sun, the earth will go dark and the sun’s corona will cast an ethereal light against the blackened sky.
