#RunningTo Week 22 in Review: Chattanooga & Camp Ridgecrest

Week 22 will forever stand as one of my trip’s more special weeks. I mean, each week of #RunningTo has been special in its own right. But when you combine reunions with siblings and a camp that changed your life, it’s hard to lump such a week with all the others.

First, Chattanooga. I got to stay with my awesome brother, and my incredible sister even drove up for a day of Zuniga shenanigans (“Zunigananigans,” if you will). I love Chattanooga. A true gem of a city where rock and river collide.

And then, Camp Ridgecrest. Truthfully, I wondered if I’d ever go back. Under what circumstances would I glance up at that sign again, walk back underneath and through that gate? Well, I can wonder no longer. I went back, and with this whole autumn thing happening, I couldn’t have picked a more picturesque time to return.

Enjoy these moments from one of my favorite weeks yet, and stay tuned Northeasterners! I’m wandering your way soon . . .
