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...
