Me and Lee have come to notice that we have terrible luck with the weather on climbing trips -_- Sat we arrived in Stone Mountain park, NC but it was snowing.... no climbing for us that day. We actually ended up getting a cheap room because it was so freaking frigid cold!

During our stay we enjoyed a private tour of both the Capitol building and the Governor's Mansion. Grace, our tour guide, welcomed us into the entrance hall of the mansion and proceeded to lead us through all the rooms on the main ...
