The views around Lookout Mountain are breathtaking!
It's been a year since we returned from our world trip. We just can't shake the travel bug so we took a Summer 2006 Road Trip. "A" had to stay home to work ...poor this was a "girls only" trip. We will visit Alabama, Tennessee, Iowa, South Dakota Missouri and Wyoming. A 5000 mile trip. First stop Alabama to visit grandparents and family. Then on to Chattanooga to see Rock City and Ruby Falls.

Visiting Rock City is like stepping back into the past. It's truly an old fashioned tourist trap type of place, which is what makes it so unique. There's something oddly sweet about all the little gnomes and fairies mixed among the trails and caves. Of course taking 2 teenage girls put a whole new spin on the place! They had so much fun "making fun" of everything!!

Ruby Falls was more of the same. After an elevator ride down to the cave and a half hour walk thought the cave, where you can admire the rock formations. The lights are turned off...the music swells and then...BOOM...Ruby Falls. It's another fun spot. OH and according to the girls the tour guides were really, really cute!
