If you are looking for a gorgeous fall foliage scene, there is still time to pack up the car or hop on a motor coach to see the beauty of Chattanooga and Nashville, Tennessee.

Club members recently returned from a great trip there. As we rounded the roads up to Lookout Mountain, each turn was a surprise on the other side. Needless to say, we did have many thrills reaching the top and boarding the Incline Railway, which is the steepest passenger railway in America.

I can't say enough about the beauty of the Tennessee mountains and the hospitality of the people who live there. They made our visit to the state an adventure we'll long remember.
