Chattanooga Family Trip

We piled everyone into the minivan and drove 2 hours to Chattanooga for a family getaway.

The first thing we saw was Ruby Falls, a 145 foot high waterfall that is 1120 feet underground in a cavern. A very strange thing to see since we are use to seeing waterfalls in Hawaii under blue skies.

To get there, we had to walk through a corridor through the mountain. Poor Nilesh had to hunch down the entire time.

Unfortunately, someone decided the falls were not beautiful enough naturally and decided to light it up in a rainbow of changing colors synchronized to some very dramatic music.

Next we take a ride on the steepest incline railway in the world, up to the top of Lookout Mountain

Once on the top of Lookout Mountain, it is said that we can see 7 states although I don’t think it has ever been verified.

We also visited Rock City where gigantic rocks the size of buildings have corridors through them that makes it feel like you are walking through the narrow streets of Rome.

The sisters decide it was the perfect spot for a photo shoot

There’s a rock that is said to be 1000 tons that is perched on a much smaller rock. Needless to say, we didn’t hang out there very long.

We did run into some gnomes making moonshine in a corner of Rock City. We told them we wouldn’t tell anyone so they let us go.
