Blairsville, GA (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: We hiked up to the top of Brasstown Bald 2 evenings ago to catch the sunset color. Brasstown Bald is the highest point in Georgia and is just 45 minutes drive from our mountain cabin. The path is VERY steep in some spots but is well-worth the almost-one-mile hike to the summit on a beautiful evening! This is the rangers' roadway that dissects the path quite near the top and shows the sky at 30 minutes after sunset. The path was quite dark on the way down but the bare trees were so interesting...

Image Description: Brasstown Bald is the highest natural point in the state of Georgia, USA, with a summit elevation of 4,784 feet (1,458 m) above mean sea level. The mountain is known to the native Cherokee people as Enotah.[2] It is named for the former Cherokee village of Brasstown, Georgia, located along the upper Brasstown Creek. Across the North Carolina state line, immediately to its north, is Brasstown, North Carolina, in the Brasstown township of Clay County, North Carolina. Brasstown Bald is partly in Towns and partly in Union counties, the peak being divided by the county line. The mountain is part of the Blue Ridge Mountains (part of the Appalachian Mountains), and within the borders of the Blue Ridge Ranger District of the Chattahoochee National Forest. The mountain is mostly made up of soapstone and dunite. On a clear day, it is possible to see the tall buildings of Atlanta from the summit. The U.S. Forest Service has webcams atop the observation tower, and a RAWS weather station further down the mountain. The

It's a great picture, but all that stuff in the corner is kind of distracting.

The backdrop of an almost-rainbow colored
sky is a perfect showplace for this wonderful
old tree. You wonder why some limbs curve and
twist this way and that, while some just stretch
out to the max, as if reaching for the other side of
the road to touch a friend. I love this shot,
Debra! Congratulations!
