I've only just noticed how that rock you're on looks like a giant, deflated skull. This is a self-link to a photo I took, but now that I look at it, I mean, jeez, DOESN'T it??
Yeah, it does. Kind of cool. You didn't notice the resemblance until you got home and loaded up the pics into the computer?

I didn't notice the resemblance until I had the film developed, got the pics scanned, and then got those uploaded to Flickr. There was a gap of several weeks.

It's Stone Mountain, dude. STONE MOUNTAIN. Bizarre geological freak. Quartz crystal center of the southern universe. It looks like all kinds of strange and freaky things because it is the strangest and freakiest thing in the southeast. I've stood right there. You've stood right there. We've taken the cable car up and down and looked at General Robert E. Lee and his buds in relief. In short, there is NOTHING that can happen on Stone Mountain that could possibly be considered outre or weird because man, it's STONE MOUNTAIN. Deflated skull? HAH! Stone Mountain sees your deflated skull and raises you the ghosts of 60,000 dead Confederates.

Ignore the horrible chin stain I seem to have developed either through pixel rot or the occult powers of Stone Mountain. . .

My aunt lives within walking distance. Last time I was in Atlanta, I stayed with her, and went out for a hike during the day where I ended up scaling the mountain on one of the sides where there was no path and then taking the sky-tram down. Then I walked back to her house. What fun!

If you take the train ride around the base of Stone Mountain, you go by the site where they cut granite to make parts of the Lincoln Memorial. Of course, it's on the backside of the mountian, far away from the much more prominent and widely photographed Confederate heroes.

Oh, and according to geologist's best estimates, only about 1/5 of the granite monolith is currently exposed, the rest of the thing sticking down in the ground, nearly to the mantle. Come back in a couple million years, when erosion will have made it much more impressive.
