Top of the world…

…Looking down at creation… or so it seemed. Another recent adventure I had the opportunity to experience was to Stone Mountain in Atlanta, GA. Our trip went downhill (literally) once the sky lift dropped us off on the top. By the time we took in the breathtaking views, captured precious moments on the camera, and got the hair out of our faces from the wind, we were ready to take the sky lift back down to the bottom of the mountain. Or so we thought… because the wind was so strong, the sky lifts shut down which forced us to hike down the mountain instead. I would love to say that we were all prepared and wore proper shoes, but that wasn’t true in my case. Hiking down a giant rock means one thing: it’s slippery. And if you don’t have shoes with good grip, the walk down becomes very challenging, very quickly. I made the poor decision of wearing my Tom’s that day, shoes that the soles consist of a rubber/leather combination… not ideal for a long walk, let alone somewhere slippery! Luckily I had a team of 4 to help me down the steeper parts of the mountain. On the plus side however, I only fell twice and it was well worth the incredible views we saw.

It was hard to get a good picture of the 3 of us with the strong winds… This was the best one we got. Sorry Abbey….
Trust me, it’s harder than it looks.
Hung on to that railing for dear life!
