By sheer accident, we were directed to Anderson Ferry by our poorly porgrammed GPS which took us from I-75 during the worst winter storm of the season. As if the hill leading to the ferry wasn't enough of an 'adventure', we were a little intimidated by the icy river and tired-looking boat that greeted us however we cast worry aside to venture aboard. The ferry was run by three funny, friendly 'mountain men' who guided our van onto the deck and took our $5.00 fare. The short ride across the muddy river was a thrill for our kids who had never been on a ferry before. We found the trip to be smooth, convenient and prompt.
