Amazing Evenings at Point Park in the Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park

During a ten-day stay in Chattanooga I visited Point Park three times and each time I was treated to a different spectacle. A hazy day with a canon pointed at downtown. One day an epic summer thunderstorm pummeled the city while I stood watching from the park. The final day the sky was filled with gentle wisps of clouds. If this was a sign of the endless natural entertainment I could expect I would be returning here over and over again.

The Airport Observation Park at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport

I’m watching an Airbus A320 taxi to the end of the runway just a few hundred feet from me. After a few moments the pilot pushes the throttle to maximum and the sound of the engines covers my ears like a noisy earmuff. As the plane smoothly moves forward, I catch a sight of the towering skyscrapers of Uptown Charlotte in the distance, faint through the hazy summer heat. This it the Airport Observation Park at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport, and this is where I had breakfast.
