Traveling is one of my favorite things to do. I have been to many places like Paris, France, and many other places, but one of my favorite places to go to is to Atlanta, Georgia.

The same man who carved Mt. Rushmore carved the face of the mountain; however, he did not finish it. The carving,. The width of the carving is the width of a football field.
