See Rock City
On the road again. Wednesday I drove from home to Paducah, KY. Yesterday, it was on to Chattanooga, TN. Drenching rain between Paducah and the TN line. Had plenty of time for go some sight-seeing when getting in town.
Decided to start my tour of Chattanooga with Rock City. Most of Rock City "tour" is walking the trail with the various rock formations. The trail winds you thought the rock and man-made structures to Lover's Leap. There you can see 7 states.
More view-points, rock formations, to the Fairyland Caverns. The grand finale is Mother Goose Village. It was interesting, some pretty good photos. A little more than just a "tourist trap".
Weather was threatening, and time to check into the motel. Got hit with a storm by the time got to the motel. Spent time getting settled into the room. After some food, I hit East Ridge Bicycles to check out the trails, places to ride. Chris Dodd gave me a very good "lay-of-the-land". I returned the motel armed with recommendation for riding dirt and pavement. Thanks, Chris.
