///   PHOTO: Stone Mountain in Georgia is Like The Moon

Stone Mountain of Georgia, USA /// VinjatekStrangely and out of nowhere is Stone Mountain, like a titan threw a small moon and it landed in the middle of Georgia, United States of America.

Stone Mountain is a pluton, a type of igneous intrusion. Primarily composed of quartz monzonite, the dome of Stone Mountain was formed during the formation of the Blue Ridge Mountains around 300–350 million years ago (during the Carboniferous period), part of the Appalachian Mountains.[2] It formed as a result of the upwelling of magma from within the Earth’s crust. This magma solidified to form granite within the crust five to ten miles below the surface.

From the top, the relatively smooth white and rounded surface of Stone Mountain really looks like your walking on the moon. The tourist group in orange adds some great contrast to the land of Georgia in the horizon.
