The fog was impenetrable. These photos were taken on a hike to the various areas of Kennesaw mountain one morning. It was windy and cold the fog was something else. You could feel it swallowing you up. When I was walking through it, I could actually feel it on my face and clothes like it was some foreign cloth. Needless to say it made for some good photography of an area that is usually not as bleak looking, for comparison I may reshoot this location on a pretty day to show the differences. I cheated and drove to the top and hiked to adjacent little kennesaw, the drive was actually pretty difficult due to the visibility. I also discovered the small power station and repeater area, which I am told is various Cobb county utilities, trunks, and law enforcement. One of the ground planes is also a school bus repeater around 400mhz. About the same time as I was poking around the power thing I noticed a black military helicopter over head . I'm assuming the incidents are unrelated. So if this page goes without updates for a while I'm probably in a dark basement somewhere with a bunch of suits.

A little history: Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park lies just west of the city of Marietta, and about 2 miles from Marietta Square, the city's historic downtown district. Eight miles long and barely a mile wide, the park now encompasses much of the area involved in a series of engagements known as the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain and the Battle of Kolb's Farm. Before the Civil War Before 1755 this was Creek land. After they lost the Battle of Taliwa, the land was controlled by the Cherokee. In fact the peak is named for the chief of a large Cherokee village in the area. These Indians were removed against their will during "The Trail of Tears." At the base of Kennesaw Mountain a "Dr. Cox" began to offer his "water cure" in the mid-1840's. Patients would frequently follow an old road to the top of the mountain. This historic road, which was improved by the Confederates to move cannon to the top of Kennesaw Mountain, can be seen along the hiking trail to the top of the peak.

Lay of the land: Rising 1000 feet above the relatively flat plateau geologically known as the Central Uplands, Kennesaw is the tallest mountain in a short string of peaks north and west of Atlanta. Just south of it is a smaller acme known as Little Kennesaw. Together these peaks are a unique formation that can be spotted from Lookout Mountain to the north and west, Oglethorpe Mountain to the northeast, and Stone Mountain due east. Two more hills create a north-south line. Pigeon and Cheatham Hill were scenes of intense, albeit brief, fighting. From here south to Kolb's Farm the battle raged for almost a week as General William Tecumseh Sherman probed the Rebel line for weakness. Creation of the Park
