Not much here. Just a quick shot of Stone Mountain.
If you're interested in history this place is worth a stop if you're in the Atlanta area.

Stone Mountain Park is one of the most visited tourist attractions in the country. The famous relief carving is the largest in the world carved into the world's largest mass of exposed granite. Often referred to as "the 8th wonder of the world," the carving depicts three heroes of the Civil War, President Jefferson Davis, General Robert E. Lee, and Lt. General Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson. The park is more than just the monument. It aslo includes 3,200 acres of breathtaking scenery, pristine lakes, forestland, spectacular flora and miles of nature trails.

Stone Mountain Park is located only 16 miles east of downtown Atlanta off U.S. Highway 78. Park Gates are open daily from 6 AM until midnight.
