Ruby Falls

Who knew that reading a simple sign could be so heartwarming! During our visit to Ruby Falls in Chattanooga, TN we learned about a man named Leo Lambert. Leo Lambert is the man who discovered Ruby Falls. Here is what this man had to say about his discovery. “Discovering Ruby Falls was like discovering God. At first it is very dark, scary, and uncertain. You don’t know what lies ahead. You bump into things you didn’t even realize were there and you suffer injuries bumps and bruises. You call down into sticky, sticky mud and mire and feel like you cannot go on. But you get up with a feeling that somewhere ahead lies something more wonderful than you could ever imagine. As you add light to what you discovered you find that the things that caused you suffering and injury were wonderful God made things, put there for you to witness and give you joy. It’s all more than you ever imagined you could witness. It is God, and Ruby Falls and the Lookout Mountain Cave are God’s creation, made for man to enjoy. I am just a little proud that he used me.” December 30, 1928

The tour was great and the waterfall was breathetaking! Definatly a must see!
