Stone Mountain Climbing
December 26, 2015 3:21am CST
I am sure that I talked about this years and years ago when I traversed the trails up. Stone Mountain is a hiking park about an hour's drive away (give or take). It is a scenic location with well pretty much trails to traverse. I went several years ago with my now ex and his family. It was a nice trip, and the view was definitely worth it. The trail was around six miles long. We stopped several people who were going the opposite way from us to ask "how much longer?" The people we asked assured us it would only take a few more minutes. It ended up taking about an hour longer. We were rewarded with a few little cabins with information about the place. I can't remember the information off hand, and I have no pictures to show. My only real complaint was that I wore the wrong shoes. I wore a pair of shoes that were actually too small for me. Obviously this is something I did not realize until I started walking the trails. I came home to very sore feet that needed a good soaking and lotioning. I hope to get a few friends together and go in the future. Do you enjoy hiking? What is the longest you've hiked?

I always enjoy a hike after I have returned home and the aches are gone. During the actual hike, it is not that enjoyable, because we are thirsty, tired, and suffer from the aching legs. The worst is the return trip! We know how far we have to walk, and since there is nothing much to look forward, the return trip is always depressing! Weeks later, the hike seems more enjoyable.

Oh, I love to hike, but unfortunately I have something going on with my left foot right now, so I can barely walk to the mailbox. I'm sorry you wore the wrong shoes, it sounds like a beautiful place. The longest I have walked was probably 5-6 miles, but it isn't the length, but the location. Like there are hiking trails at the local state park where I had hiked all the trails and I have my favorite. However, going to places where there is a lot of beauty, like Hocking Hills (Look that up, it is in SE Ohio) and the scenery is so beautiful. And the Geology in those hills are amazing, Old Man's cave (one of the places we went on our Geology trip, there is a formation with the shape of an old man's face) has all these layers and cut outs from the water, it is absolutely beautiful.
