Blairsville, GA ( high 55, low 28) 30% chance of snow
We had such beautiful weather last week. The skies were blue, temperatures in the upper 60’s and no wind. That has changed abruptly, and we now have a chance of snow, tonight and tomorrow. We’d like to see some snow, so that’s okay with us.
We planned on leaving this Sunday, but not surprisingly, we just can’t seem to bring ourselves to drag ourselves away. We love it here, and the color is still pretty nice. We’re not as brave as Merikay and Craig, and prefer to drive through Atlanta on a Sunday, but I guess that won’t happen.
The other evening, we drove over to Brasstown Bald mountain to watch the sunset. We’ve taken a lot of sunset pictures over the ocean, so we decided it was time to get some from the top of the mountain.
We weren’t the only ones there.
We chose to stay in the parking lot, instead of walking up the .6 mile paved trail, which goes straight up the mountain. We had done it earlier in the day, and it was a tough one. I think it was more due to lack of oxygen, but I could never seem to catch my breath. They have a bus that takes you up, but they stop running at 5pm. The pictures would have been much better, but it would have been a cold and dark hike back down after sunset.
We stood around and waited for the sun to go down. It was getting pretty chilly.
The interesting cloud formations made for some nice photos.
It’s funny how the different light brought such different colors.
Soon, our sunsets will look more like this.
