EXCERPT: From the old CCC-built fire tower atop Flagg Mountain, you can look out on an unobstructed 360-degree panorama: diminishing green hills and valleys playing out to the south and west, and to the north and east the rising ridges of the Appalachian Mountains, with the trees just beginning to turn to autumn colors.
In the minds of some dreamers, this dramatic view should be a first sight for hikers to behold as they set off for Maine on the Appalachian Trail. At 1,152 feet, Flagg Mountain is, according to at least one common definition, the southernmost Appalachian mountain. Heres' a complete selection of pictures taken by Birmingham News photographer Michelle Williams.
