Have you ever been to Ruby Falls? It's in Chattanooga, Tennessee, about 90 minutes from where we live now.
Ruby Falls is an underground waterfall. You take an elevator down and walk through the cave for about half a mile to get to the falls. It's a constant and pleasant 60 degrees down there, which makes it great to visit during the summer. Since it's a cave it's pretty dark, so I'll spare you most of the grainy, low lit photos I took - but I have a few highlights, like the Elephant's Foot. Skinny elephant, he'd be.
This is one of my favorite formations - it looks like giant strips of bacon hanging from the ceiling of the cave.
And here's another super healthy treat - tobacco leaves.
Once you get down to the falls, they have the lights off so they can flip the switch and astound you. I've been to Ruby Falls several times in my life and I never tire of it.
V loved it too. She's just now almost able to be patient enough to go on short tours like this. Almost. Fortunately, most of the people who had to listen to her constant comments (hmm, I think I could stand a cup of tea) were charmed.
She loved walking behind the falls and feeling the spray - it made her hair all curly.
As you turn around to leave the falls, this is what you see. That silhouette is a guy pointing up in amazement.
If you have a moment, tell me where your favorite natural attraction is in your home state. I love to read about cool places on the Internet, even if I can't always visit them in person.
