See Rock City

I remember vividly as a kid always seeing the barns all over the United States that said “See Rock City.”  Over the last 30 years I have been probably a dozen times and it always seem to get a bit better.

It had been about 10 years since my last visit and they have added a bunch of new stuff including a restaurant and a bird show.  The bird show was awesome and all the birds there have been hurt or are unable to be returned to the wild for some reason or another.  We got to see a Bald Eagle up close and also a Horned Owl.

Rock City was built in the early 1900’s as a garden and is a fairly easy hike through the paths, rocks, gardens and Gnomes.

If you are ever near Chattanooga it is well worth the stop!

 

Precarious Rock

When I saw this rock, which is probably at least 30′ in diameter, on a hill on a road outside of Yosemite, many questions came to mind.  What is holding it in place?  Why did it stop there?  If it starts to roll how long do I have to get out of the way?  If it takes out the rental car, does my insurance cover something like that?  Would the rental car burst into a giant fireball and how far away do I need to be away to be safe?  If it does begin to roll, can I get it on video and sell that and make lots of money?
