Stone Mountain Park

Another place we took mom & dad Curtis was Stone Mountain. It's about 1 1/2 hrs. from our home. The mountain is all granite and on the side of it is carved three Generals from the Civil war. Only 20% of the mountain is above ground. It's beautiful there. They have little shops like old candy stores and little resturants. Stone Mountain used to be a mining town back in the day and you can take a ride in an old train that will take you through the old town while telling you all about it. They also have a gondola ride that you can take to the top of the mountain and a boat ride as well.

We ate yummy homemade ice cream and sat in the little train depot to stay cool while we ate it. Of course, everything cost a small fortune. To get 4 hot dogs with a little bag of chips and drinks cost over $30 dollars! But that is to be expected when you go to places like this. It was so much fun to have mom & dad with us!
