GA & TN Hiking: South Cumberland, TN & Brasstown Bald, GA (Part 2 of 2)

Along with Cloudland Canyon, GA, Curt and I drove into Tennessee to check out South Cumberland State Park.  The views there were breathtaking.  Unlike Cloudland, none of the overlooks had railings... which gave it another level of incredible.  Though we got freaked out a bit when approaching the edge, I couldn't imagine anything better than taking a camping trip, waking up from my tent on a Saturday morning, and watching the sunrise with a cup of coffee.  It's on my list for 2011.

The day following our two park hikes, Greg joined me in hiking up Brasstown Bald.  Though you end up driving up most of the way, there are still miles of trails surrounding Georgia's highest point that can keep you busy for days.  The sideways ice on all the branches was as interesting as it was beautiful.

First up:  South Cumberland

And for those with vertigo...

And finally, Brasstown Bald:

And I had to put this one in there for fun...
