Summits # 296 and 297 - Tray Mountain and Yonah Mountain, GA

Fall in the North Georgia Mountains. It doesn't get much better.

Backpacker Magazine rated the view from Tray Mountain as the best in Georgia. I disagree, (Rabun Bald is probably my favorite) but as you can see it's still pretty great. This is the view north into the Nantahala National Forest. 
Yonah Mountain is used for rappel training by the Army Rangers.
