Alas, Bambi was all that I found, so I decided to head up town some to Collective Clothing 2 and check out what all they had gotten new in stock since I visited a few weeks back. Driving over, I debated where to park in the popular area of town I was headed and decided to take the opportunity on the nice day for a walk to get over to the store. Thusly, I parked across the river from CC2 (sorry, I can't give up my free parking spot info though! Those things are hard to find...) and was ready to walk across the Walnut Street Bridge, a solely pedestrian bridge and one of my favorite places to be in all of downtown.

When I was in high school, I couldn't wait to go away to college and I eventually did, starting my freshmen year at MTSU (go blue raiders!) and distinctly remember saying to many of my college friends, at many different points in the 4.5 years I was in Murfreesboro that Chattanooga was boring and I didn't want to move back to this town. Looking back, I was wrong to say that- sure there may not be quite the scene that's going on in Nashville or Atlanta here in Chattanooga, but it's pretty awesome- we've got some really rad culture going on and on days like today, the beauty is extra extra visible to anyone who steps outside to enjoy it.

That being said, I hope you enjoy the pictures and if it strikes your fancy enough, come to visit- or at least take a little vacation in your mind for a few minutes.
