Yesterday, immediately following church, I went on a trip with the girls of my youth group to "Snow Mountain" at Stone Mountain Park, and might I tell you, it was AMAZING! I had never been to Stone Mountain for anything before, so I had no idea what to expect. I was not prepared for the extreme amount of happiness that was about to befall me.
We all arrived at Snow Mountain dressed in our heavy coats, gloves, and winter boots in the 60ish degree weather because we had absolutely no idea how cold it was going to be sliding on tubes in the "snow". I hadn't the slightest thought as to what it was even going to look like. Once we were checked in, and we came to the attraction, I was finally able to set eyes on it. It was this huge slanted ramp type contraption that was covered in this icy substance. While waiting in line, we all saw other people sliding down in their tubes, and a strong wave of excitement came over us.
We grabbed our tubes, which are kind of like the ones you use to go tubing on a lake, and rode this escalator belt to the top of the "mountain". The ride up was almost as fun as the slide down. =) At the top, I waited in line until I reached the edge, and then I sat in my tube and was pushed off. I really don't like heights, the feeling of falling, and people pushing me down heights so I will fall, but this was an exception. I haven't had that much fun in a long time. It made me feel so adventurous.
After everyone had had enough of the ice tubing, we all went to the bottom and played in this huge area that was covered in SNOW! At least, it looked like snow, and was cold like snow. So, I'm just gonna say it was snow.. We all had this huge snowball fight, and by the end of it, we were all shivering and wet. I haven't been that cold all winter =)
Well that was my wonderful, exciting, adventurous Sunday... I hope everyone had a good weekend as well!
