Ruby Falls We went Ruby Falls, a classic tourist stop in Chattanooga. 

The tour is of a cave inside Lookout Mountain that culminates at a waterfall inside the mountain...

Like all cave tours, you really have to take the tour to really appreciate the sights in the cave.  Without special equipment, the real effects of the rock formations do not show well/  But we took some photos anyways.

The falls at the end of the cave tour are really amazing.  Mark had taken the tour back in 1980.  New to the tour is a path around the falls, so you can see the backside of water.

Ruby Falls On the tour, Dale adopted these four boys who were traveling with their Grandmother and Great Grand-Mother.

These boys where well behaved and really paid attention to the features of the cave and Dale liked being a teacher.

Ruby Falls Like a good tourist spot, Ruby Falls has added several things, like a playground, to entertain families that come.

As a good citizen of the Earth, Ruby Falls added solar panels on the roofs of their facilities to reduce the amount of grid electricity they need to run the attraction.
