Chattanooga, TN – Ruby Falls (Part 5)

During Spring Break 2019, we traveled down to Chattanooga. While there, we enjoyed the scenic views of Lookout Mountain. We also visited Ruby Falls, the Tennessee Aquarium, and the Chattanooga Zoo. We also looked for ghosts and ghouls on a ghost tour. Enjoy our spring break/ 20th wedding anniversary trip.

On Tuesday morning, we went to Ruby Falls.

The night before I had watched this camper try to park. I was intrigued with it that I took a photo the next morning.

So what is Ruby Falls? It’s the largest underground waterfall in the United States. It’s located inside Lookout Mountain. Lookout Mountain is the southern most mountain in the Appalachian Mountain Range. It’s actually a plateau rather than a mountain.

We were the first guests of the day meaning that we were the first ones in the queue line and on the first elevator of the day. We ended up with an excellent guide named Brent. He had been a guide for Ruby Falls for 25 years.

Our first view of Ruby Falls and the view from the front of the building.

I loved these signs.

Some of the formations inside the cavern

We got behind a little boy who was frightened while down in the cavern. It made it nice because he was walking slowly. I got to take photos. After a while, the father let us pass so we were not behind them anymore.

Now for the main attraction – the falls

Here is more of the caverns. That elephant’s foot was made of pure iron.

I enjoyed looking at the items in the gift shop.

Views from the outside of the Ruby Falls.

Join me next time for our visit to Rock City.

Have a magical day,
