This was probably one of the most fun sunrise photos I have taken in a long time. Awake at 0230, on the road at 0300, at the trail-head at 0500. Began hiking just after 0500 and at the top of Blood Mountain at just after 0600. Blood Mountain is the highest peak on the Appalachian Trail in Georgia. We started the hike at approximately 3000 feet and made it to just shy of 4500 feet. 2 miles, 1500 feet and a beautiful sunrise.
