Thumbs up I've Never Expected To See THAT....

JMT, those were wonderful shots of Chattanooga. I've never seen pictures of that area, and it was not only surprising, but also refreshing.

I agree. Back in the 1970s some magazine (Newsweek? Time?) said Chattanooga was the country's dirtiest city. They've really worked hard to overcome that image, and I think they've done it quite successfully.

Thanks! I've always thought that Chattanooga is one of the South's (even the country's) hidden gems. It's got a cool downtown and some beautiful countryside surrounding the city. I think it's fun to be able to leave your office tower downtown and 30 minutes later be whitewater rafting in the mountains.
