We started the morning off at Rock City when they opened and it was perfect because the crowds were light that day. We spent a good long time adventuring and seeing the sights.
|Fall colors!! YAY!|
|Needless to say, I did not try the rope bridge but mom and Aunt Darlene did!|
|Heading into Fat Man's Squeeze|
We left Rock City about 2 hours later and started to make our way to the Georgia Mountain State Fairgrounds in Hiawassee, Georgia. The drive was absolutely amazing to get there.
Once we arrived, we had loads of fun surprising Uncle Jimmy and his wife, Sherry.
|Each vendor had their own little group of 'cabins' to sell their stuff|

|This is my current fb cover photo. As we were driving back to 'Nooga, we pulled off at just the right time and I ran to the lake to try to get a shot of the sun going down between the mountains. Nailed it!|
We finally got the go ahead and started our matches (they were moved indoors, more on that on the tennis portion of the post).
Then our last full day we snapped a few more pics of Chattanooga during our drive to and from matches.
We had such a wonderful time. And there is plenty more to do and see that we didn't even get a chance to try. Chris would totally love driving this route in our car and the fact that it's only like 7 and a half hours away makes future trips very possible!
