Rock City Gardens is located just 6 miles from Chattanooga on Lookout Mountain, Ga. For the website, go to www.seerockcity.com . So as not to commit a copyright crime, here is the Rock City story from the Rock City website: http://www.seerockcity.com/pages/Our-Story/ . I will tell the story of my visit through pictures.
When I first walked up to the ticket booth, I saw a magnolia tree. At the old house we had a huge one right in the front yard. Since then I have always liked them. So I took a picture of one of the flowers on it.
When I took a closer look, there was a honeybee inside the flower. He was just going to town on the pollen.
Here is the entrance.
Once inside the entrance there is a little stream that flows along the path.
When you enter they give you a very nice map that tells you the names and places of all the structures. The first one is called the Grand Corridor.
Next up comes Gnome Valley. One thing I was beginning to notice was that someone had a serious Gnome fetish.
I have to say, the stone pathways were really nice.
Mushroom Rock? I wonder how it got it's name?
Uh-oh. More Gnomes.
But there are Goblins as well.
One of the coolest things I ever saw was the stone trashcan. What a novel idea.
Due to the amount of pictures I took, I will be posting my trip across Rock City over four blog posts. More to come in, "Adrian Visits Rock City Gardens, Part 2."
