US Visit - Ruby Falls

One weekend, we visited Chattanooga in Tennessee State of USA to see the Ruby Falls.

In 1928, Leo Lamberrt and a group of fellow explorers entered a small opening to a newly found cave in Lookout Mountain. They spent 17 hours exploring on hands and knees and then heard the sound of rushing water. They were awe-struck by the magnificent beauty of the waterfall they discovered at the deepest point. Leo later named the falls after his wife Ruby. Ever since, Ruby Falls has been a destination for discovery and wonder for visitors from all over the world. 


Ruby Falls is a 145-feet underground waterfall. We went underground in an elevator, to the mouth of the long-winding narrow cave which leads to the wonderful sight of the falls.The way is full of natural rock-formations of all shapes and sizes. The path is well-lighted which makes the journey convenient. The sight is so wonderful that it cannot be described in words. One can only experience the amazing journey. 

Here are some of the photos we took:

    2. Thank you for visiting my blog. Now-a-days, I have become irregular in blogging.

      Selected posts of my blog have been updated, chiseled where necessary and published in a 300-page book in last December. The book has been well-received.
