Mission Accomplished! I can happily tell you that even with a threatening sky that looked very much like rain, Richard and I hiked up Stone Mountain this weekend. Because of the weatherman's prediction of 80 percent chance of rain, the park was fairly deserted...this is almost unheard of for a weekend.it is usually packed with people. It was delightful! On our walk up the mountain, it was so quiet, so dear (deer!)
This is the sign that they had posted at Stone Mountain for Monadnock Madness. Do you see how they seem to emphasize the 3 mountains in 1 day? I think it would be fun to do all three in one day, and I think I could do it, but I also did the three within the month of March, I am glad to tell you that I received the special gift at the base of Stone Mountain, from the nice lady at the beautiful Confederate Hall building. She informed me that there will be a Wildflower Hike at Stone Mountain Park on May 10th. You know I signed up for it! I was pleased to see that the man who will be leading the hike, Larry Winslett is one of those who has done much of the great work at Stone Mountain in preserving the natural areas of the park. It is his photos that are displayed so prominently around Stone Mountain Park. I am looking forward to meeting him!
Richard took almost all these photos, but I took this next one! That's a photo of Richard going up the mountain. I told you it was quiet.
Here I am on top of Stone Mountain! Richard, don't take this picture if my hair is blowing straight up...Richard, it's not doing that, right....you promise me?
Wow, after we climbed down the mountain, the wind blew the clouds away and it was the prettiest blue sky day you could ever imagine, it turned into a lovely day!
The next time the weatherman predicts a rainy day, take a chance and go where you want to go, he might be wrong, he was this time!
