Rock formations

There is history all around us. Turn off the media devices and hit the road. I’m fortunate in that a lot of my county is National Forest so I can walk miles of country looking for these hidden gems of our past. Just remember that anywhere you go someone has been there before.
 
I have several rock cairns(25 plus) on my place which is between ROCK EAGLE and Rock Hawk. One set is one side of hill facing west and the other set is on side of hill facing east. Both are located near spring. I pretty much leave them alone. My daughter wanted to mark them and see if they have pattern

Lots of good info in that book. I have lived in Putnam county my whole life. Several mounds buried under Lake Oconee. A lot of those big rocks were covered up by the lake. I killed many a deer off those rocks Pre 1980. Walk the hiking trail that carries you by the granite outcropping. Fascinating micro natural area that has plant’s from the northern reaches of North America.
I got my copy of “Oconee River Tales to Tell” today. I read through about 40 pages before I put it down. Thanks for sharing about it.

I’ve heard multiple times that all of these big granite rocks/outcroppings are part of Stone Mountain..and it extends way down into middle GA..like to Macon. Anybody else heard that?
Yes. A large out cropping at Lake Oconee by the Lawrence Shoals park.
