I visted the highpoint of Georgia on a weekend trip to go white water kayaking in North Carolina and bag three highpoints. We stopped by the highpoint of Tennessee on Friday on the way to NC. Whitewater kayaking on the Nantahala was incredible, my first real trip on class III whitewater! The next day, Sunday, we visited two more highpoints before heading home. The first was Georgia's Brasstown Bald, 4,784 feet above sea level.

The surrounding area was spectacular. Bert and I decided to take the hiking trail up from the parking lot rather than taking the shuttle. The summit is heavily developed with a large forest fire spotting tower and even a musuem. We hung out for a while but were soon on our way to visit South Carolina's highpoint.
