Monadnock Madness Hits the Metro Press

Mona-what? Monadnocks are special types of mountains formed when hard blobs of lava are compressed under the Earth’s crust. Now that the softer rock around the granite clumps has been eroded away, Georgians are treated to three amazing geological oddities right in their backyard. Stone, Panola, and Arabia Mountains are all monadnocks. Throughout the month of March, Monadnock Madness celebrates these rocky wonders with events including hikes, photography lessons, an artistic gathering and more. For those really looking to go mad, a series of Triple Hike Challenges offers the chance to summit all three monadnocks in one day.
