And here is a final picture of (almost) all of our motley crew, as we prepare to enter the most terrifying, mind-boggling, haunting area of Rock City. Yes, yes, we did indeed screw our courage to the sticking place and enter the twisted and oddly aglow Fairyland Caverns. All right, no, we didn't have a choice, as there is only the one path. I'll say this, though, about the caverns: I don't know what the sculptor had against the "Old World," but it must have been massive to render all those children so grotesquely. And they glow, people! It's not natural!!
We parted ways with the Howies after Rock City, and they went on to see Ruby Falls. We drove on to Dalton, Georgia, where we had dinner at an interesting place called Curt's Restaurant.
