Stone Mountain and Halloween

On our last day at Marietta-Atlanta Campground we visited Stone Mountain. The largest high relief sculpture in the world, the Confederate Memorial Carving, depicts three Confederate heroes of the Civil War, President Jefferson Davis and Generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson. We recently learned about these men in our study of famous Americans. The figures were completed with the detail of a fine painting.

We had planned to visit during the week when it would be less busy. Well we planned it well. It was a cool fall day and the gondola was closed, but we really enjoyed the one mile hike to the top.
While on top, 1,683 feet above sea level, we enjoyed amazing views of downtown Atlanta, the North Georgia mountains and the surrounding area. They say on a haze-free day, you can see 60 miles from the mountain.
Grammy Carol brought Marcus and Caroline each a pumpkin to carve. Their dad was glad to help them carve. Gram and Eddie sorted out the seed to toast.Gram and Eddie brought their ice cream freezer and made homemade ice cream.Marcus and Caroline had been planning their costumes for weeks. Caroline was a vampire ballerina and Marcus was a shadow ninja. They were so glad Gram and Eddie were there to dress up with them. It really made the day much more special. They walked around the small campground. The owners even had donuts for the only trick-or-treaters in the campground. Grammy even made an all orange dinner.
