Georgia Terrace Complex No. 7
Thought you folks, especially the archaeologists, would like to see what I am up to. I am using special spectrum satellite imagery and ERSI software to find more terrace complexes along solar azimuths associated with the Track Rock Complex or the high point of Brasstown Bald Mountain. The centrum for this search was the rectangular stone ruins at the top of the Track Rock terrace acropolis. The transit line where I found this site runs between the centrum at the Track Rock terraces to the center of the oval stone ruins on top of Ladds Mountain near Etowah Mounds. The software told me that the top of the visible terraces was at about 3,000 feet above sea level. I will have to check it with a GPS device, once I figure out how in the heck to get there. It is a very remote location, not near any public or USFS roads. It appears to be a large complex.
