Highpoint #19  Sucess!

Remnants of Tropical Storm Nate really kept me from enjoying this summit. It was cold and windy with no visibility but what a great experience...I will have to come back!

Brasstown Bald #6  Sucess!

Barely made summit before sunset. On a work trip, I rented a convertible Mustang and ran upstate to make this sunset. Saw a few bats flying on the way down.

HP #19  Sucess!

Third of a 5 HP long weekend. Alone at top, 21 degrees with nice wind. Great views, except for the multiple fires in the visible area. On to South Carolina from here...

Highpoint # 21  Sucess!

On a 3 week RV trip. Hit 4 state highpoints. Dogs in tow. Took the short hike up from the parking lot. Beautiful day and great autumn colors. Stayed at a campground about 8 miles away and we could see the summit tower from town (Hiawassee) Pretty amazing.

HP #13  Sucess!

This was our 13th Highpoint and the first stop on our week long trip of six Highpoints. We made the short hike from the parking lot to the summit. There is a shuttle that can run you to the top.

Larvitour Stop #9  Sucess!

I started up from Jack's Gap at 6 am, hoping to catch the sunrise at the summit... but I got to the top an hour late. Oh well. The views were still quite nice in the morning light, and I had the high point almost to myself.

Snow at the top  Sucess!

Gorgeous views on a clear cold day. Georgia sure makes their high point a great place to go. Just a few brave souls out. 19th HP.

HP #5: Grey and Beautiful  Sucess!

After a three-day section hike on the AT, we drove to Helen, GA (about 20 mi. from the summit) for showers and German food. An interesting local attraction with decent hotels and eateries. Breakfast at Hofer's Bakery was noteworthy for good coffee and strudel.

Brasstown Bald was an excursion on the way home. Walked up from the top parking lot - which we had to ourselves. Facilities were shuttered, but they looked interesting. The raw beauty of the view and the history of the area make this a great visit and summit in any case.

Cold and windy in late March, the start of the AT thru-hiking season. Though we saw hundreds of AT thru-hikers during our section hike, we did not see any on this summit. Most of them no doubt had their sights set on the North Carolina state line.

Highpoint #25  Sucess!

On a business trip gone awry ended up having two days of doing nothing in the Atlanta area. Needing to get outside for awhile I took the Jack's Knob trail up to the summit. Completely fogged in, tower closed and saw nothing.I ran into the "Brasstown Bald Buster" 5K that was going on. Heck, if I would have walked up the road I could have gotten a shirt for finishing "Georgia's Toughest 5K."
