raccoon-mountain

This afternoon, we went to Raccoon Mountain Caverns, which is located outside of Chattanooga, Tennessee. As we were waiting for our tour to start, I had just happened to find this old cable car sitting off to the side next to a building where you can get yourself equipped for the Wild Tour. I don’t know anything about it, other than it’s been sitting there for a long time. The only thing I can figure is that the cable car used to go up the side of Raccoon Mountain to other attractions at some point in time.

October 27th, 1863 (Siege of Chattanooga).

Hooker is apparently not a team player with Grant any more than he was with Rosecrans.


Honorable E. M. STANTON,

Secretary of War.
BRIDGEPORT, October 27, 1863-6.30 a.m.

Troops are now just moving out for Shellmound and Raccoon Mountain. No evidence to show that the rebels will oppose the undertaking. Hooker came here from Stevenson last night. He is in an unfortunate state of mind for one who has to co-operate, fault finding, criticizing, dissatisfied. No doubt the chaos of Rosecrans’ administration is as bad as he describes, but he is quite as truculent toward the plan he is now to execute as toward the importance and confusion of the old regime.

This is the outside of the cable car that we had found near the main building which housed the entrance to Raccoon Caverns in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I’m not sure why this is still sitting there. Regrettably, even I thought this was an eyesore. I’d hate to know what its original color scheme used to be.

Good headcanon

Star loves animals and she has her own lil collection of them that she nursed back to health after finding all of them injured in some way.
The only problem is….she doesnt know when to stop. Her room is literally a zoo… Shes got like 3 coyotes, a bird or two, 5 squirrels, a raccoon, a baby mountain goat and somehow an ALLIGATOR..

They all seem to be happy around her and there all friends despite them all being on different trophic levels. Stars just magic

Marco doesnt have it in him to tell her to get rid of them
