Description

If you haven’t been to Brasstown Bald, let me tell you a few things. First, this is the highest point in the State of Georgia. Second, you get great views of the Blue Ridge Mountains from here. Third, the climb up to the summit from the parking lot is pretty steep!

There were a good number of photographers out on the observation platform to watch this gorgeous event. We all marveled as the sky was painted in vibrant hues and even the Blue Ridge mountains were tinted in red, orange, and yellow. It was an amazing sight.
