Tennessee home

This is the area where Rose and I grew up as kids.  It has really changed since we left home.  The 4 lane road was a winding two lane road.  The road went over the mountain rather than through the mountain as it does now.
The road you see here (heading away from you) is US-25E.  If you keep going south on it I believe you will end up in Ashville, NC. I don't know where it goes from there.

If you look closely you can see where the road enters the mountain.  The town that you see a little of is Cumberland Gap, TN.
Believe it or not there is a city under all of that fog...Middlesboro, Kentucky.

Such a picturesque area.

Hi Neal, Gorgeous pictures. I love that one with the fog... Awesome!!!! Makes me want to go back up there.

We have snow here this morning---but only about 2 inches. It's cold here also (18 degrees)... Schools are closed ---and we'll stay inside today ourselves... We have a nice big fire going in the fireplace this morning.

Glad I do feed my little birds though. They are flocking to the feeders... Poor little things!

These are marvelous pictures, and I recognize the scenes from our visit to Cumberland Gap. You did a great job of capturing the fog in the valleys.

Love the pics of your 'home' area but the Alaska header is wonderful!
Like Betsy, we got snow last night too. Maybe a couple of inches.

You grew up in such a pretty area. Neal. You must have been very high up to take these photos!
