Ehem…via the Prius, on the amazing Cherohala Skyway highway. It’s a late arrival to the road system, draped across high ground with many pull-offs, and a perfect choice for a sunny autumn day. We found slopes and peaks that were mostly denuded, along with plenty of pine/oak/other species forests with nice leaf color.
We thought the rivers had more water than we expected for the season, but maybe our expectations are skewed from the many drought years….
The states we visited were GA, SC, GA, NC, TN, and home in GA. That was more that we planned when we left home…got carried away by the fine views…in a good way.
