Kind of a freaky feeling:

AWESOME!!!!!!!!

Anti-gravity boots

I should probably add...this tag is on what may be my absolute favorite 25 miles of pavement in the state (even though there was quite a bit of gravel in the corners today)

Some really fun back roads all through there.

New tag coming shortly, but to give you an idea of the direction from this tag, I hit the last Coates/Willy-B tag, followed by the previous Coates tag before continuing in that direction for thie new tag. Fun stuf the whole way .
Cool..! Glad someone got this! I like the new tag also..!

Some info on the river at this location can be found here:

http://waterdata.usgs.gov/ga/nwis/me...e_no=02332017&

Note the rather small drainage area of only 414 sq. miles..

The closest upstream gauge showing current streamflow data is near Cornelia:

http://waterdata.usgs.gov/ga/nwis/uv...65,00060,00062

The graph shows the real-time flow compared to long-term statistics. Still running well below the median for the period of record! This is why Lanier is still so low and why it takes so long to recover.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ley_line The one around there would be of the new age type, I read about it on some witch site. I can't tell you how I found myself on that site without giving too a big hint on the tag.

Tag!

This is FS 664, also called the Cohutta lookout, on Hwy 52 a little west of Ellijay and on the north side of 52. It is easy to miss since it's at the start of the good twisty bits and we're not usually looking around much.

Nice 180 degree view on a day like today.

Weird thing is that nowhere at the site does it say what this structure is. I've got to believe it is some sort of Civil War era lookout.
