Wednesday, November 3rd, we were headed to Tommy's Point, but the imminent rain changed our plans. After much ado about meeting, with some here and some there, we finally got together at the trailhead on Signal Mountain. Fourteen of us headed out of the parking lot under gray skies. The trail immediately dropped us into the woods which had already shed enough leaves to create a soft footfall. The rain in the preceding days created a bit of a muddy path in areas.
Stormy perched on the point over North Chickamauga Gorge down below and we all settled down for lunch. We were chit-chatting and having a good time of relaxation until a wave of dark clouds overtook the gray sky and we all jumped up to don our rain gear and head out. Some of group barely had enough time to eat a few bites! Arlene made sure to get her apple in at the last minute, though!
