There is nothing more beautiful than a sunrise in the mountains, except for possibly a sunset. There is a peace that settles in here like the dew. The counties of Dawson, Pickens, Lumpkin, Union, White, Towns, Habersham, Stephens, Banks, Franklin, and Hart are part of the Appalachian Range. Though each county has its own unique flavor, they are collectively known for their ruggedness and overwhelming scenic beauty. The Cherokee Indians, the original inhabitants of these mountains, called them Sah-ka-na'-ga- "The Great Blue Hills of God". And at certain times of the day, they really are blue!
One great place to see them from is Brasstown Bald, the highest elevation in the state. Nearby is Helen, a recreated Alpine village with an Oktoberfest, and Cleveland is home to the Cabbage Patch Nursery. Blue Ridge, Young Harris, and Dahlonega are among the towns here. Lake Hartwell and Lake Carter are beautiful, unspoiled lakes replete with bass, trout, and water so clear you can see the sky in its reflection. The cultural heritage of the Cherokee Indians abounds throughout the area. The Dahlonega ‘gold rush' of the 1830's was the catalyst for the exodus of the Cherokee Nation from Georgia- the infamous trail of tears.
The deep blue waters of Lake Chatuge and the purple hue of the Blue Ridge Mountains are a visual feast for the eyes. Horseback riding along a mountain trail, fly fishing a cold stream for rainbow trout, hiking the Appalachian Trail, breathing in the mountain air; watching the sun dip below the last range from your rocking chair- these are the moments you long for. There is shopping here- all that you may need, and fantastic restaurants nestled in communities throughout the region. But rush hour is noticeably absent. Everything the big city is- the North Georgia Mountains aren't. Cabins, A frames, Chalets, and many beautiful custom homes are perched on the side of mountains taking in the magnificent views. It may be that one of them is where you and your family plan on watching that blue mountain sunset.
