First day of our trip and pinching ourselves. Will be traveling with our longtime friends Ben and Maureen Judkins for the next couple of months. Spent this afternoon exploring bicycle trails and hiking to see the two waterfalls in the park. Took Molly on the hike with us and she loved swimming in the waterfall pool. We would have loved to join her but were not allowed. Heading to Cave City, TN ...
Arrived at Rome Visitor Centre and the young lady got all excited as they've never had many visitors from outside Georgia, never mind the US. She was very helpful and directed me to the Myrtle Hill Cemetery and Chieftain Museum.
Rome was started in 1834, formally, and the name was decided by the 4 funders each putting a name in a hat and first one out was Rome. To the proposer, the hills and rivers around the area reminded him of Rome. Other suggestions ...

Speed limits a bit confusing, my Satnav said 70mph and everyone seems to be doing that, but the signs said 55mph.
As usual all the signs had minimum speed limits too.
Got to Fort Payne and it was shut!!! Followed some Trail of Tears signs to a Cherokee Chief's home, called the Andrew Ross house. The house is now privately owned, although photographs of the outside are encouraged.
There is more to this story, as I may get to ...

On my return trip back to the west rim and my campsite I some how got off the trail. This ended up being one of the sketchiest hikes I ever did. Somehow, I got off on what looked to be either a game trail or an old hiking trail that had fallen into disuse. At the beginning, it was clear enough to look like it actually went somewhere so I followed it until it abruptly ended at a pretty steep drop off the face of the canyon. Apparently, ...
... man created all this.....amazing. We got a panini and sat in the garden, a guide and two students sat next to us and we shared in his talk about the chapel. We then toured the other sections of the museum. We went toSt. Peter's but the line to enter the basilica was very.very long. So we decided to walk and have a gelato instead.

TravelPod Member ReviewsMentone Cabins
We have had some, magical, fun, restful and wonderful times at the Mentone Cabins, The cabins have been very clean with all the amenities of home plus a fireplace, a jacuzzi, and a hot tub. We've seen and enjoyed nature at it's best; watching squirrels and lizard, hearing all the different sounds of birds, of the winds blowing thru the trees, of the slow moving waters of a creek, and the train's whistle blow in the night. Also, delightful memories... being surprised by the sight of bats flying at dusk in the distance from our deck and all the beautiful star lit night sky's above. The fun climbing rock formations... laughing at ourselves, all the while taking videos and pictures. Yes, we truly have made memories at the Mentone Cabins!!
Yes, by all means, we would recommend these cabins to all those who are into making memories.
