    Stone Mountain State Park Overnighter

    I started this thread so I don't hijack bhancock's trip report thread any more than I already did (Sorry, bro, didn't mean to). So 4D's and I are planning an impromtu overnighter tomorrow to Stone Mountain State Park. We'll be leaving Charlotte tomorrow (time aren't quite finalized yet), hanging at site A, maybe do a little hiking while we're there and coming back on Wednesday. Anyone else in the general area interested in joining us? If you are, just shoot a PM or e-mail to me or 4D's.

    *Happy 2500 posts to me!

    No worries, either one will do.

    Wish I could join y'all but gotta work
    If you go over & do the Stone Mountain Loop Trail, maybe you could take a picture or two of the new steps they built going up the side opposite of the falls. I haven't seen those yet. Got mixed feelings about them adding all those wooden steps to the "Wilderness Area", but they didn't ask my opinion
    If it's hot, the water's always cold there!

    Jealous of you guys. Wish I could come join you. Work's very busy though, so no getting out during the week for me, plus I'm saving vacation for a family trip in October. Bummer to miss out this time.

    Be sure to jump in that waterfall for me. If you happen to explore above the waterfall at site A please take a lot of pics. I never made it up and over to check it out. Could be more falls up there that would be cool to check out.

    I'd love to go, but I also have to work... and after work, I have to get back to the sewing machine!

    We did venture a good ways up and over the falls. There was another pretty cool waterfall with a 10 to 15 deep cavern to the right side of it. I did not dare go in it.
