The Passage

This is a part of the Trail of Tears. There are seven ceramic discs on the wall, reflecting in the water, which represent (from bottom to top):  Weeping Eye Mask, Coiled Serpent, Strength of Life, Connections, Warrior Birds, Four Journey Directions, and Sun Circle. There is usually water running down the steps, symbolizing the tears of the Cherokee nation, but it is turned off right now.

This is an awesome photo! I can't tell which is the reflection and which is real life. At first, I didn't even know what it was! Great perspective! I can't wait to see this in person! I'm so glad that you are sharing all these cool things with us. You are our guide to Chattanooga. - And I am glad that your daughter is safe at Auburn. War Eagle!
