Southern appalachians in the autumn rain

Continuing our southbound trek, we wound our way through and climbed up and down amongst the southern Appalachians. We not only drove into and out of clouds, we also splashed through real rainfall for a few miles. As we crested the last few bumps en route to Georgia’s Gainesville, we could see light beneath the cloud layer, and, indeed, when we drove into the MetroArea, we had no precip to make unloading more complicated.

BTW, yesterday we visited only eight states. Eight!
