Day 3B Afternoon - Chickamauga Battlefield Overlook

A nearby park had a great overlook where you could see downtown Chattanooga.

...and get an idea how big those barges are.  Some are so big they have to break them up before going through the locks.  That's why there can be 2, 3, 4 or more hour delays at the locks.  Plan on it.

I hope this thought had occurred to you before you got this far.

Next: Day 4 - Hales Marina (gas), Nickajack lock, Crow Creek TN-401
