Rock City

Our first adventure in Chattanooga was Rock City on the top of Lookout Mountain.  Rock City is basically just that!  A city made of rocks.




Rocky was there to greet us before we started our adventure.  Allie asked if she could take her picture with Rocky...Ayden wanted nothing to do with him!

 
 
We followed the enchanted trail...


 
 
 
...across the Swing-A-Long Bridge...
 
 
 


...past the 100 foot waterfall to Lover's Leap at the top of Lookout Mountain.




Rock City was supposedly built by Gnomes...we spotted them ALL throughout the trail.  At 1700 feet above sea level...you can see pretty far...SEVEN states to be exact.  Ayden got out of the carrier and ran around a bit.  It was really HOT up there.



We enjoyed some lunch up there and the kiddos cooled off with a little treat before we finished our travels through Rock City.



The Fat Man's Squeeze was a pretty tight spot to walk through.  Ayden was on my back and I had to make sure we both fit through.  Allie said her favorite part was the Fairyland Caverns.  She recognized many fairytales there were displayed in the mountain caverns. 

Rock City was a really neat place see.  I'm so glad we all got to experience this magical place together.  It was a great start to our trip!
