Rockwood, Tennessee



These are a couple of my 35mm slides from the old days.

The upper photo is of my Father in Law raking and burning leaves at his mother's house in Rockwood, Tennessee. It's in east Tennessee between Chattanooga and Knoxville. Her house is a pretty little house on a hill. Of course, more often than not, you're put to work when you go there.

The bottom one is of anntenae on top of a mountain overlooking Rockwood. There's a small park and also a fire tower up there and is a wonderful place to go see the sunrise. This is therefore another rare bit of proof that I've gotten up and out before sunrise.

That fire when you first look at it, looks out of control but then I read what you posted.

The 2nd photo is also beautiful.

The colours in these two pics are incredible! So vivid. Sunrises like that are worth getting up for!
