Rock City, Fat Man's Squeeze. Chattanooga, Tennessee

The path enters rock formations, descending into "Fat Man's Squeeze," a deep black hole in the rocks that is tougher on the shoulders than the belly.

Legend has it that gnomes and elves used to hold large seasonal gatherings in a clearing on the far side Fat Man's Squeeze, thinking they were safe from the curious eyes of humans. When they realized how many of us were able to wiggle our way through, the Little Ones retreated to a more private meeting place deep within the forest.
