Description- The mountains cover the northern part of Georgia. The Blue Ridge and Appalachian Mountains combine to form the mountain habitat in north Georgia. Here there are mountains, valleys and ravines along with many waterfalls. The elevation gets much higher than the rest of Georgia which causes changes in the plants. 

Location- The mountains extend across the northern part of Georgia. 

What animals live there? - Deer, black bears, wild turkeys, raccoons, bats, and foxes roam the mountains. Trout can be found in mountain streams while bass and bluegill fish live in the lakes. 

What plants grow there? - Cherokee Rose - the state flower, azaleas - the state wild flower, and many varieties of apple trees.
