Correction: Stone Mountain is a lie

IMG_2630We goofed.

Stone Mountain brags they are the “largest piece of exposed granite in the world.” That’s a lie.  Turns out there are several other pieces that are even larger (like the Sierra Nevade mountain range).

And, it gets worse…

Stone Mountain isn’t even granite. It’s quartz monzonite, which is an igneous rock. So, it looks like all Stone Mountain is a big clump of  rock with a Confederate relief on side that Georgians watch a good ol’ laser show on.

To our readers: a mountain of apologies.
