So I'm a week behind... big whoop...

Thursday night late week: I was packing for a trip which I knew little about. All I had been told was to pack walking/hiking shoes, and that the temperature would range from 40-70 degrees. Despite the fact I was in the dark about where we were going and what we were doing, Rob kept asking me if he had packed the right clothes. Considering he packed four jackets, four shirts and three pairs of pants for a weekend away, I kept telling him that he probably had his bases covered.

Friday night last week: The secret destination was plugged into the gps. Given the direction we were headed and the estimated time of arrival, I was able to decipher the clues to learn we were headed to Chattanooga.

Saturday morning last week: We woke up early and headed back into Georgia to Cloudland Canyon State Park, the last hike to join Canyon Climbers Club. The park is in a drought so the waterfalls were measly, but it was quite a hike, or should I say "climb."Saturday afternoon last week: After billboards directed us to Rock City and Ruby Falls the whole way to Chattanooga, we decided to give Ruby Falls a try. While the cave tour was less than impressive, the glorious waterfall at the end made it worth it.Saturday evening last week: The one thing I asked for while in Chattanooga was a barbecue dinner. You just can't go there without relishing in a little Sticky Fingers. We felt pretty hip, hanging out downtown after dark. And even treated ourselves to some Ben & Jerry's.

Sunday morning last week:
Although we had plans of hitting the corn maze, we ended up at the riverfront park instead. What a cool place! We spent the whole day walking around, admiring the greenscapes, the riverboats, and the second longest pedestrian-only bridge in the nation. And, it made a great location for a photoshoot. I'm always willing to be the model, just as long as Rob's always willing to be the photographer!
