Write Up:

We had 9 trekers rapidily multitasking up AT's Blood Mtn. to the Top of Georgia!  There were several wet & sliippery climbs to get to the top & then, again on our return.  However, no one fell.  At the top, we had our evening dinner with mostly clouds covering our sunset.  Richard was able to pinpoint, on his star-finder app,  our exact spot to move to on the East side of the Mtn. to observe the Full Moonrise.  However, again the clouds primarily obstructed our viewing to a very small bright spot through the clouds.  As, we-LED lighting bugs in formation-made it down the mountain; we got many glimpses of our full bright white moon!  Great news was, we enjoyed many diverse conversations & a terrific mountain workout in our evening trek!  Ya'll come back soon!
