A granitic gneiss outcropping atop the dramatic Blue Ridge Escarpment gives Caesars Head State Park its name. Every fall, from the easily-accessible overlook atop the rocky peak of the Blue Ridge Escarpment, sight-seers are treated to the Hawk Watch program and a spectacular view that extends into North Carolina and Georgia.
Caesars Head connects to Jones Gap State Park in what is known as the Mountain Bridge Wilderness Area, an 11,000-acre area of pristine southern mountain forest. Hikers can take a number of loop and traverse hiking trails that connect the parks, and trailside camping is available for those who choose the longer routes.
One of the most popular trails at Caesars Head is the two-mile Raven Cliff Falls trail. This hiking trail leads to 420-foot Raven Cliff Falls, where a suspension bridge offers one of the two publicly accessible overlooks to the falls as they plunge deep into the mountain cove below.

Hammering the diamond at Alabama Junction
We are at Alabama Junction, where CSX's Jacksonville Main, formerly the ACL A-Line, crosses Georgia Central's line to Macon. Today, we see a short local as it heads south through the diamond. I am unsure of the symbol of the freight, but it consists of former NYS&W B40-8 5948 and 4 box cars. This diamond is right along the street, and I was accompanied by a signal maintainer the entire time. If you have any questions about the video, feel free to message me. Comments are welcome. The video was taken on August 31st, 2015.
