Impressive. Been a long time since I saw that. I seem to remember a rubble pile below the sculpture; either it's been hauled away or it's now obscured by trees.
I climbed the mountain a couple of times as a kid -- on the other side, where the slope is easy. Is that a cable car I see up there? That's for sissies
When I was in high school, a friend and I tried to operate our own soft-drink stand partway up the mountain. We got rained out. A lightning bolt struck a tree maybe 50 feet away. We never tried that again...
You might recognize a memory of Stone Mountain in one or two of my pastels.
