Climbing Stone Mountain near Atlanta
I took my son up this hike when he was younger, but when I asked my daughter if she wanted to climb Stone Mountain, she envisioned rock climbing and repelling up the carved side! She declined going. Fortunately, there is a gentler slope to the other side of the mountain. I like to go in the park at the back gate, turn right and then the walk begins from a parking lot there. There are restrooms and water at the bottom and at the top. There is also a snack bar at the top and picnic tables about half way up under a pavilion.
The weekend after Labor Day one of the largest craft shows is held here at the park and it is named after these daisies...The Yellow Daisy Festival.
I decided that since the leaves were so pretty, I would get another shot of the grist mill. They were, however, shooting a movie scene there, so I could not get to the grist mill, but I did take some of the movie set. I will have to go see the movie when it comes to the theatre to see this scene!
