Write Up:

The effects of Hurricane Issac threatened to derail our hike around the base of Stone Mountain; luckily the band of weather moved off and we had perfect albeit cloudy conditions for the hike. Ten AOC members managed the hike at a moderate pace enjoying the scenery and some homemade cake at the old mill. At the end, 4 of us enjoyed a stroll to the top of Stone Mountain and while returning to the bottom we were greeted with a fantastic sunset.   

For those of you who requested the Coconut Rough recipe take 1 1/12 cups of self-raising flour, add 1 cup of sugar, 1 1/2 cups of coconut, 3 Tbsp of Starbucks Hot Cocoa, mix together and then add 200g of melted butter. Bake for 15-20 minutes at 180 degree Celsius. Take out of the oven and allow to cool, add icing while still warm.

For the icing...Please join Aaron in his first solo hike. Details to come.
