I visited Stone Mountain Park for the first time last week. If you’re passing thru Atlanta or its many suburbs and you enjoy nature beyond The Discovery Channel, hiking/walking and beautiful views, I’d say give it a gander.
Thanks to Josie over at Mind Jo Business for re-sparking my interest in taking this trip! I will be going back since it took less than an hour to get there. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and seeing the sunset from such heights made it extra special. The mile-long hike made me feel like beast! Aaaannd the sore legs the morning after were so worth it.
Trips don’t always include passports, pricey hotels or touchy airport TSA; sometimes all you need is a Google search, maybe $20, a snack bag and some free time. Hope you all are exploring and getting outdoors as much as possible.
[P.S. This park is also famous for some nonsense as it still has confederate soldiers carved into the mountain and a confederate flag flying high near the start of the walk-up hike. But we can remove symbols all day, right? That won’t change the hate this nation was built on and perpetuates. That won’t change the hate in people’s hearts [or area where their hearts used to/should be]. But besides those two things, it’s a beautiful park. End rant.]
