Foster Falls trip

Last Sabbath a large group of us got together and went out to Foster Falls, on the other side of Chattanooga. It was quite a fun and relaxing afternoon...excellent views, decent trails, and severe rock walls, which were not attempted by us, being of the highest difficulty, and necessitating advanced skill and equipment. Nonetheless, we enjoyed watching a few adventurous climbers for a few moments.

This is the first thing we saw when we got to the park.

We read a few selections from the Bible while waiting for the rest of our group.

Another pic of the falls.

We decided to go down to where the pool was at the base of the falls, and discovered a fun swinging bridge in the process.

This picture and the next were taken from the same place. This is the platform from which we first viewed the falls.

A different view of the falls, taken from the same spot as above.

After going around to the top of the falls, and forgetting to take pictures, we headed back to the starting place, and rested awile.

Meanwhile, others of our group were having fun seeing how loud a noise a rock could make when hitting water from 60 feet up.

This is a zoom in of the leftmost edge of the next picture, to give an idea of the scale of the cliffs.

Here you can just spot a figure to the right of the top of the falls, in a white shirt. Again, this shows the size of the falls. Quite a spectacular view.


Back by popular demand! (At least from the population of this room)

Since it's been such a LONG time since I've posted, and I can't think of anything else, my lame offering will be a discourse on the increasing ratio of electronics to other things in my room.

As you can see from the picture, my family is growing. I currently have four computers, three are pictured in the picture, and one is on a shelf off the right side of the picture. Starting from the left, you can see on the floor between the bed and the desk my beautiful, 5 year old, built-it-myself desktop, which is actually coming due for a much needed upgrade, as soon as I can acquire the much needed extra cash. (Yes i know, no such thing as extra cash...my point exactly)

Moving towards the right, you can see my brand new Laptop, which I just finished setting up a dual boot with Windows XP Pro and Ubuntu, a distrubution of Linux.

On the right hand side of the picture you see my new/old desktop, which I have acquired for the fun of playing around with it (for free, of course). It currently awaits a power supply that I must pilfer from one of the dead computers in Hickman Science Center.

The fourth, and final computer currently under my ownership, as I mentioned before, is not in the picture, chiefly because i didn't think of putting it in, and am too lazy to take another picture. It is my old laptop, that I am selling to help offset the hit my wallet took when I adopted my new laptop.

I don't know exactly why I am posting this, except perhaps to give my readers a small snapshot of my life here at southern, for those of you who are not.
