Stone Mountain, GA

We next headed to Jonesboro, GA where we bought the motorhome in October. The dealer was going to do some maintenance and repairs for us. We enjoyed some Georgia pizza with our friends, Ken and Mary Jo Patterson. They were kind enough to have looked over the motorhome for us back in August before we actually bought it.

While the coach was worked on, we took the opportunity to visit Stone Mountain - the south's equivalent of Mt. Rushmore. I (Nada) had been here when I was a kid. At that time, the carving had stopped and they were just talking about finishing it. As a kid, I vividly remember prisoners in orange and white strip suits and chains around their ankles and wrists working with picks and shovels to make the "new" parking lot. Since that time, they have finished it and also made a beautiful park around the base of the granite mountain. Homer enjoyed the time to walk around with us seeing how they used to mine the granite and the quaint grist mill. We just love going to these places in the off-season. We have the whole place to ourselves. It is so peaceful and beautiful.
