Stone Mountain – Thanksgiving Road Trip

It has become some sort of tradition to make the yearly Thanksgiving pilgrimage to visit the Georgia family. So this year we did it again, and while I am not going to chronicle everything that transpired during our visit, I will document the touristy stuff, like our visit to Stone Mountain Park. Our RV park was in the town of Norcross, and our family lives around Lilburn and Lawrenceville, so the park built around this famous rock formation was really nearby. It is actually the fourth time we are in the vicinity, but we had never actually visited the park and we were pleasantly surprised. It definitely deserved more than a few hours of our time. There are plenty of attractions to justify a day or two. There is a resort, and antebellum plantation, a scenic train ride, a golf course, plenty of outdoor activities and even a campground. This time we only visited the huge granite rock which is an unusual type of geological formation called a pluton. From the top you get commanding views of the area. You can see downtown Atlanta to the west and on a clear day even the Appalachians to the north. All that is documented in the video below. Enjoy!
