The city of Atlanta has always had a good spirit.- Ivan Allen
There is a lot to love about Atlanta, Georgia. Not only is it a diverse cosmopolitan area, but there is such a charm to the south. Whether it is the old brick houses or the friendly citizens, Atlanta is an enchanting representation of the modern south. Aside from the sites, we L-O-V-E-D eating our way through the city. I mean who doesn’t love delicious ribs (Fat Matt’s Rib Shack) or Soul Food Pizza (Jack’s Pizza and Wings)?

Use Caution! Slippery When Wet!
Boy they weren’t lying! The boyfriend and I decided to make a stop in Atlanta before heading back to San Francisco. I lived in the metro area many years ago, so it is nice to come back and visit. We (along with my sister and her bf) headed to Stone Mountain Park late in afternoon. The park is really pretty and has a vast number of activities to do, such as play in fake snow and ride a sky tram. We only hiked up the Walk up Trail to take in the view. Essentially, you are walking on smooth rock the whole time. Since it was raining the night before, there was water running off everywhere.
This made for interesting walking conditions. The trail isn’t that long (2.5 miles round trip?), however, we had to walk super slow due to slick conditions.
Despite our caution, 3 out of 4 of us ended up on our butts at some point😳. However, we made it to the top. Cue victory music!
Happy Monday everyone!
