Do you live in this house?

Ha, Tom! No, it's not my house. Nobody lives there now.

A few related landmarks are now visible.

A cemetery has become visible at the bottom, but it's not the most important burial location in the picture.

In light of the holiday this week, I was led to find out it is the home of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. His burial site is also in the image, at the King Center.

There is a junction of sorts in the middle of the image, in the river.

The area is federally protected under a couple of designations, one of which is named for the landmark at the "junction".

This river is a National Wild and Scenic River (the Wild and Scenic River Act is 50 years old this year). The junction mentioned is that of political boundaries. Notice the lack of roads in the middle of the image, where this junction is about the center.

Almost went hiking and climbing in the area and had a chance to paddle section 3.5 of the Chattooga yesterday.

 

Ellicott Rock is the name I think you are looking for, or the border junction of NC, GA, SC.

 

I was looking all around north GA before I finally found it.

Yeah, nice work! Ellicott Rock on the Chattooga River is correct, the location where the NC/GA/SC borders were surveyed and inscribed on rocks more than 200 years ago. Ellicott Rock Wilderness Area surrounds it. Lower sections of the Chattooga are premier eastern whitewater. In pop culture it is known as the setting for the film Deliverance.

These geomorphological landforms are ubiquitous on this mountain (they are not limited to just this mountain, they can be found throughout the surrounding area)

The origin of these landforms are not fully understood and their name may be a misnomer because they lack one key ingredient.  I'm still looking for the name of the mountain seen here (not what the landforms are called, that is just a hint)

Ice is the key ingredient missing.  Just like Tangnar's last location, there are multiple federal and state designations protecting this mountain.

The road with multiple pull-outs makes me think of the Blue Ridge Parkway? Is it along there somewhere?
