Hello there, River City of Chattown, I’ve been longing to visit you as your leaves began turning colors and the wind sings its song about Autumn’s arrival through the mountainside. October is my favorite month for mountain travel because the foliage is various shades of red, yellow, orange, and magenta. Chattanooga, TN is a magical city with wonderful hikes just outside the concrete and cobblestone of downtown.
Tucked into the hillsides of Tennessee, you will find Gatlinburg. A quirky town full of themed tourist sites and gimmicks. However, step away from the streets and into the woods and you’re transported into a time before. A time of Native Americans and living off the land. A glimpse into the lives of our country’s ancestors.
