  • The Peach State Treasure - Clue #1

    Wasn't sure if I was going to look into this one, but was bored so took a look at it for a little bit today.

    Begin your trek where the great canoe rest
    Take a look from the place of new green
    You will travel between many crests
    The city in the forest can still be seen


    Begin your trek where the great canoe rest - Pretty sure this is Brasstown Bald. This is the place where the "great canoe" came to rest in the old Cherokee legend that is similar to the Noah's Ark story. Read more here: https://towns.fetchyournews.com/2018...rasstown-bald/

    Take a look from the place of new green - (Credit to MoFinn) The high, rounded peak, Brasstown Bald or Mt. Enotah, is the highest mountain in Georgia, 4,748 ft. Its Indian name, Itseyi, means “a place of fresh green,” referring to its grassy, instead of timbered, summit. Early white settlers mistook the Indian name for a similar one meaning brass. According to Cherokee legend, there was once a great flood and all men died except a few Cherokee families who landed on top of Brasstown Bald in a giant canoe. The Great Spirit killed all the trees on top of the mountain so the survivors could plant crops and live until the floods subsided.

    You will travel between many crests - ???

    The city in the forest can still be seen - The city in the forest is the nickname for Atlanta, GA. It is said that on a clear day you can see Atlanta from Brasstown Bald.


    If anyone wants to fill in any gaps, I'll update this post to put in new information
