Stone Mountain Georgia

Last Saturday Cody's friends invited us to go to Stone Mountain for the evening. We arrived around 4:00 p.m. (before Cody's friends got there) so we saw the Glass Blower demonstration in the little village and the story teller, and Skye found the old fashioned Candy store. Then we took the tram up to the top of Stone Mountain. It was fun and the best part is that I was able to walk the whole time and didn't need my scooter! We forgot our camera so these are images off of the internet.
Stone Mountain is a huge granite rock/mountain outside of Atlanta (about 20 0r 30 miles).
On the face of the rock is a carving of (from left to right) Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson. If you don't know who they are you are seriously lacking in U.S. History and probably should have flunked the course.
This carving is HUGE! A 6' tall man could stand in the horses mouth! It's over 90' from the top of Lee's head to where his sword fades into the rock.

After dark they have a fantastic lasar show on the big lawn overlooking the carving. The whole evening was so much fun, especially since Amber and Becky brought some great food and snacks!
There are no words to describe how cool this lasar light show was! While we were there we received a text from Shiloh and Jason telling us how they saw this light show on their wedding night (Stone Mountain is where they spent their honeymoon) and they said the light show was AWESOME!!!
(Yeah... don't ask because I can't answer whatever question is brewing in your mind. You will
have to ask them. :-)
Have a great Day!
