Stone Mountain, GA

We were at Stone Mountain last February and thought it was such a lovely park and location so after the Rally in Perry we decided to spend a night at the campground at Stone Mountain. There were more people here this time than a year ago February. It was a beautiful time of year to visit. Doug took these super photos of the Memorial – Jackson, Jefferson, and Lee. I just can't get over how beautiful this park is. When I (Nada) was here when I was in junior high, it was nothing but a gravel parking lot. There was a chain-gang working the gravel with picks and shovels in their stripe prison uniforms with chains around their ankles and wrists. Can you tell it made quite an impression on me as a young adolescent! Now this park is a quiet enclave surrounded by suburban Atlanta.

As I said, it was a beautiful time to visit. The redbud and cherry trees were in bloom. The weather was in the mid 70's.

Our campsite was looking out over the lake. As we were eating our lunch on our deck, Doug spied the snapping turtles sunning themselves on the log floating in the lake.

As I write this we are crusing up through Georgia and Tennessee headed for Pigeon Forge, TN where we will stay for awhile. See you soon!
