             Right outside of Atlanta is a beautiful park called the Davidson-Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve. Within minutes one can go from high-rises to this beautiful area of wetlands, pine and oak forests, and a large mountain of exposed granite known as Arabia Mountain. I was there recently with family and friends just after Christmas and was struck by how strange and beautiful the mountain is. Except for a few small pools of water it’s a pretty arid environment. In spite of this, you can find hardy but pretty trees and shrubs as well as a plant with bright red leaves known as red diamorpha. It’s also a wonderful place to watch the sun set over the hills and city in the distance.
