North Georgia (USA) Blue Ridge Mountains
"Beautiful mountains, abundant outdoor activities!"
As the eastern edge of the Appalachian Mountains in the southeastern United States, the Blue Ridge Mountains boast long, parallel ridges, separated by deep valleys with the Brasstown Bald peak being the highest point in the state. At the southern end is the spectacular Amicalola Falls which is the tallest waterfall east of the Mississippi. Rocks forming the eastern slope are among the oldest on earth, some exceeding 1.2 billion years and pre-dating the formation of the mountains.
Bluegrass music, having its roots in the Appalachians, is a unique sound that features mostly acoustical instruments and combines elements of both traditional Scottish and Irish folk music. Traditional folk art such as storytelling, folkdancing, and a wide variety of handcrafting can also be found in most of the small, friendly towns of the area.
