SOULED IN APPALACHIA

Local & Travel Website

                                                                                                                       Hey guys!

We’re Jason & Jesica Clemmons from Blairsville, Georgia and we’re fueled by travel, the outdoors, photography and food. We have a little shop in Blairsville, right at the foot of Blood Mountain called, Sunrise Grocery. We sell local goodies like photography (by Jason!), pottery, handmade soaps & candles (by me!), honey, jam, knitting (by Nanny!), and local-grown fruits and veggies. Blairsville is a beautiful, small mountain town surrounded by the Appalachians and graced by Vogel State Park and Georgia’s highest point, Brasstown Bald. We have three kiddos, well, they’re not so much kiddos, they’re actually full-grown adults, but you know how that goes. We’re so proud of them and adore the time we get to spend with them. We also have two spoiled doggie brothers who will be traveling with us most of the time and one cat who, in true cat fashion, hates being in the car so she holds the fort down for us when we’re gone. 

Jason is a published photographer who’s images have been featured in several magazines, the Atlanta airport, local businesses and beyond. He co-teaches photography workshops with FIND Outdoors. Also, he and Chris Greer are in the process of filming a television series for Georgia Public Broadcasting, called View Finders, that will air spring of ’22. He loves exploring the outdoors and photography and is talented in bringing them together to produce some beautiful art!

I have a small business making Appalachian inspired soaps & candles called, Sunrise Wick & Wash. I supply Sunrise Grocery, my Etsy shop and FIND Outdoors (formally Cradle of Forestry) in several of their national forest locations in Georgia and North Carolina. I love anything outdoors, reading, traveling, history and learning about the different cultures both in the United States and around the globe that make our world go ’round. I am currently working on becoming a registered yoga instructor and hope to forever be a yoga student. 

Recently, we gave into ourselves and bought a travel trailer. It’s something we’ve talked about since we got married and we decided to finally bite the bullet. We’re super excited about traveling around, visiting cool places and hopefully scouting out some local restaurant faves. We want to document it so we can one day look back on it all. We figured we would share it with the public, too, since there are so many others who enjoy the same things. 

 

Thanks for stopping by! Cheers!
