A WEEKEND IN CHATTANOOGA (Part 2)

Hello Everyone. Welcome back to Camera & Clicks. It’s been a long time since I could post. My Grandfather became sick. It took a couple of weeks for him to regain his health. With all this going on my blog took a back seat. So continuing from where I left off, in my last post  A Weekend Chattanooga I talked about our unplanned trip to Chattanooga. The first day we spent at Ruby Waterfalls, the next day we went to Inclined Railways and Rock City.

The Lookout Mountain Incline Railway is an inclined plane railway. Passengers board the train at the base from St. Elmo’s Station , to Point Park at the mountain summit, which overlooks the city and the Tennessee River. The railway is approximately one mile in length and is one of the world’s steepest passenger railways.

After that we went Rock City, located atop Lookout Mountain. Rock City features a long, convoluted rock trail lined with gardens containing hundreds of labeled local trees and plants. The trail also leads through a variety of bizarre rock formations.

Lover’s Leap is one of the rock formations, with a beautiful view of 7 States. Legend states that an Native American who loved a woman from a rival tribe was thrown from the lookout when it was discovered.
