Summit # 156 - Blood Mountain, GA

Elev. 4,458 ft.
6th highest peak in Georgia

I returned to Blood Mountain yesterday (this time with a fully charged camera) with hopes of capturing some images of the stunning views from the craggy summit. The weather, however, had other ideas. A light drizzle fell as I climbed up the AT and a heavy fog shrouded any views from the summit. All was not lost, however, as the weather kept the crowds to a minimum and I had the peak all to myself. Plus there's a certain spooky quality that comes while hiking through the mist alone on one of Georgia's most famous mountains that you just have to experience for yourself. "No Quarter" by Led Zeppelin was the perfect soundtrack for the day.
