Above the clouds...and a forest critter.........

Friends Bev and Steve enjoyed a 5.5 mile hike from Arkaquah Trail up to Brasstown Bald, the highest point in Georgia at just under 5,000'. This is a view looking DOWN on the clouds...
And another view looking down to the valley below when the clouds moved away...
But THIS picture is a very deadly critter...a rattlesnake! Yikes!!! You'd better watch out while hiking in these hills...........Bev, thanks for letting me 'steal' and share these interesting pictures!!!

Tell the hikers I'm impressed w/the 5.5 mi. hike- the walk from the parking lot to the top was about enough for me last time! LOL

Very nice shared pix except for the last one (shudder)!

Haley, I feel the same way on the TWO walks...and the critter. Dad said he would have given the critter a 'headache.'

I agree, that is a hard 5.5 miles, uphill! Waaaay uphill.
I have never met a rattler around here and hope I never do!
Great pictures, though.
Hugs,
Joy

Love the view above the clouds! I'd love to do that hike. I'd need about a week to do it, but I'd love to!
