Stone Mountain

Okay, so if its your first time in Georgia it is obligatory to visit the largest attraction in the area: Stone Mountain. Well for a Colorado kid this thing isn't a mountain; what it looks like is a giant rock dropped into the middle of the forest.

We took the gondola to the top and the view is awesome. Trees for miles. The trail from the bottom looks like it would be a great mountain bike ride if there wasn't hundreds of tourists on it.

The paddle boat ride on the local lake was very relaxing. We ended the day with a laser light show shot against the rock wall. The laser show displayed a great tribute to the South and to America.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot to mention the three Southern generals carved into the side. Quite impressive, but not as big as Mount Rushmore.
