17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Dairy Cow in Helen, Georgia.

Among the beautiful mountains the first thing people see right before they arrive to Helen, Georgia is the Nacoochee burial mound. Excavation by a joint expedition of the Museum of the American Indian, Heyes Foundation, and the Bureau of American Ethnology of the Smithsonian Institution unearthed 75 burials in 1915. However, these days, the dairy cows roam and graze around the mound leaving a picturesque landscape everyone can't help but enjoy.
