Photo(s) of the Day: Ruby Falls

On our drive home from Atlanta to Kansas City, we stayed in Chattanooga, TN. I booked the hotel in advance knowing nothing about the town; we just needed a place to rest. When we arrived, we were greeted with tons of brochures about Ruby Falls, Lookout Mountain, and zip-lining/ropes courses. All of those sounded fun, but we decided to check out Ruby Falls since it opened the earliest and we had a 10-hour drive ahead of us.

The Ruby Falls tour consisted of a one-mile cave hike several hundred feet below ground. The stalactites and stalagmites were beautiful!
After hiking back to the falls through narrow corridors, the cave opened up into a huge room.
As everyone frantically snapped photos in our timed seven minutes at the falls, I stepped back and photographed the people for a sense of scale.
Ruby Falls drops 145 feet from the cave ceiling to an underground pond below.

    Those are some amazing pictures of some incredible natural beauty! Some of the best “finds” are those we stumble over.
