My family decided to do a theme of “Zen” this year for the Christmas spirit, meaning we all had to buy or make gifts for each other that encouraged, for either the gift giver or the gift receiver, a state of peace, calm, and contentment. In that spirit, I cannot think of a better way to have spent several hours on Christmas than by hiking down by Signal Point, in Chattanooga. We walked through the woods, passing scenic bluffs overlooking the Tennessee River, and then up to Rainbow Lake, along a tributary of the Tennessee whose name I do not know. Here are some photos taken throughout the day. Enjoy!
