Could there be a ghost on these photos? Look closely at the clothing. Not exactly modern!

See the mountain in the background. It's all rock! In spite of the green trees, the evenings were cool and some nights were quite cold for October. There were a few leaves trying to change, but it is Georgia.

    Great pics, Mary! Even if I didn't see any ghosts. :)

    I saw the ghost. Spooky.

    Just beautiful! Makes me homesick. On my first (and only) trip to Stone Mountain, the carving on the side of the mountain face was only half-completed because the artist had some kind of row with his sponsors and quit. We got to see the giant plaster casts he hung over the side of the mountain to assist him in carving the figures. They were kept in a shack at the foot of the mountain in view of the carvings. There were ho safety barriers or cables cars or anything else then. Two weeks before, some climbers had falled over the side and been killed. We climbed straight up the slope. I have a beautiful little water color I did of it.

    I'll share some details about the carving, too.

    Mary, your photos are, as usual, outstanding! Was that Nancy with the man standing behind her?

    That was, indeed, Ms. Nancy!

    Great photos. Would have liked to see you in costume, too. What a fun time. I love ghost stories and of course LOVE THE SOUTH!

    I borrowed a long skirt from the costume closet. Next year I'll make my own. Thanks, Sylvia. You'd love Stone Mountain Park!
