    This is at a bluff about an hour near here. A rare find in these parts.

    This is a small island a few miles offshore and the only way to get there is by boat. You can dock or just pull up to the sand bars and anchor. The island is now run by the US Park Service & you can camp overnight for only $15 per boat. Great way to spend the day.

    Here's the view from on top of Stone Mountain:

    I grew up climbing this mountain at least once every season. The views are gorgeous!

    It's only an hour or so north of Atlanta.

    Grew up climbing the mountain, watching the great laser show (do they still have it?) and canoeing in the lake. Great place.

    Yes, they still have the laser show. I don't think they have changed much it in years. It's still great!

    Glad to heat that. I'll have to go again the next time I am up there. If I remember correctly, it's always so crowded (but then again, everything in Atlanta is).
