I took this photo somewhere in the Chattahoochee National Forest along the Appalachian Trail.
There’s a lot of outcrops and views in North Georgia, but I loved this view that highlighted the low, subtle, rolling ridges with the diversity of plant species.
I know the East Coast mountains are not as epic or grand or breath-taking as the West Coast mountains. But they are older, more mature, and more diverse. They’ve had years to erode and settle and provide the ecosystems time to niche down and create a huge diversity of plant and animal life.
