Kennesaw Mountain

Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park IMG_5791is a 2,965 acre national park that preserves the civil war battleground of the Atlanta Campaign. Opposing forces maneuvered and fought here from June 19, 1864 until July 2, 1864.

We started at the top of Kennesaw mountain, which the elevation is 1,808 above sea level.IMG_5781We can see Atlanta, Buckhead, Stone Mountain. It is so cool. IMG_5788Okay it was a little hazy. We took this photo by one of the cannons on Kennesaw Mountain…IMG_5785We kept walking on to Little Kennesaw Mountain and then that leads to Pigeon Hill…IMG_5790We didn’t go all of the way to Pigeon Hill but we walked a long way. The one thing Ella and I kept saying as we were hiking is they brought those cannons all the way up here in those uniforms, we do not know how.

It was a great day for hiking and fun to do, I totally recommend it for Staycationers, oh and visitors to our city.
