The terrain

In Georgia, the Appalachian mountains are a series of peaks and valleys ranging in elevation between 2500 and 4500 feet. The trail takes you over several peaks and into several valleys (called gaps) each day. The trail is very well maintained and is marked by  a white rectangle (white blaze) painted on a tree at regular intervals. It would be very hard to get lost. I’m hiking about 10 miles a day, which leaves a fair amount of time to rest and birdwatch. Two of my favorite birds so far are the pileated woodpecker and the blue headed vireo – lots of them here. All for now.   Junco
