Lots are big and reasonably level. Not concrete. Sights are not really that far apart but ok. Plenty of trees. Dog run. It's actually on a Civil War battlefield. All of the streets are so named. There's even a small trail to a monument. Too cool.
We are only here for a day, to my disappointment now that I'm here. We made our way to lookout mountain. Way too cool. If you go, go to the incline railroad. Look it up. Takes you to the top of a mountain where you can overlook the whole area. There's even a place called Rock City where you can see seven states from there. You have to drive to that tho. We didn't have time to go to that. From the train you can go to a 3D battlefields museum and a Peak Point park on the very tip of the mountain where you can see everything. Well worth it. You can even hike down from there if you want.
Unfortunately we are leaving tomorrow for Vicksburg then back home to Texas. We are traveling through Dallas. On that note, I'm dreading traveling through that mess right now, but ready to get home to the safety of my rifle safe. I feel certain the fellas that died on this ground that I'm camping on in my spoilt lifestyle are surely ashamed of the way things are turning out. I've had several people checking my license plate or ID for beer purchases tell me they are sorry for the Texas drama. I'm thankful there are such people still out there.
A men that those boys would be ashamed of our actions, to think of all the men and women who have died for our country and how we are disrespecting it!
