On the way to Chattanooga for AQS Quilt Week,
DH and I stopped at Rock City in Lookout Mountain, Georgia.
Of course, we HAD to take these silly photos . . .
There was A LOT of this . . .
. . . and some truly breathtaking views.
I'm actually pretty proud of myself --
I'm not afraid of heights, but they can and often do make me queasy.
Where we live, we're less than 350 feet above sea level.
Rock City rises to roughly 1,700 feet above sea level.
Not like the Rockies, but enough difference that we could feel it.
This was the biggie . . .
I walked across the swinging bridge!
(with a few white knuckles along the way)
This man and his wife kindly waited for me.
He was even more nervous about crossing than I was!
This is one of the many, many views from Lover's Leap.
Notice that little platform that sticks out into thin air?
I had to ease my way out, but I did it!
This was the reward . . .
Looking back towards Lover's Leap
and a beautiful waterfall.
On our way out, we climbed another gazillion steps
after working our way through "Fat Man Squeeze."

And for those who might wonder why all of this was important . . .
This sign explains so much!
