Exploring Georgia

Jas was in town visiting last week. While I was a bit under the weather (and subsequently Kiley as well), we did manage to have some fun. We did the usual tourist thing, a big hit was the Murder Mystery Dinner Theater, I actually ended up with a speaking role. We also did manage to do a bit of exploring too…

Stone Mountain was beautiful, it’s basically a giant rock about 25 minutes from downtown. It had some great hikes, I only wish I was up to seeing more. I got some wonderful photos, I definitely want to head back another time. As a side note, I’ve been thinking about starting up a model railroad project and this place was great inspiration. I’d like to take a ride sometime when their line is in service.

The Atlanta Botanical Garden was a bit of surprise. I actually had fairly low expectations given the fact this was the north end of a park, however it turned out to be a really nice place. Ki loved the orchids and I was pretty impressed at how in bloom things were this time of the year.
