Temporary glitch

If you look at this blog regulary, you may notice the photo at top isn't loading. And if you try the 'local links' link, you'll get an error message. Some of the photos and text is stored on my personal Web site at Earthlink, where they tell me the site has been accessed too many times this month and is shut down until the 1st.
This hasn't happened in the 5 years I've had it, so don't know why it's happening now. One thing that sometimes causes this is people linking to a photo to display on their own websites without downloading it to their own server. If by any chance anyone reading this is doing that, please take the link down. Thanks.

A new blog

The Knoxville News has come up with a new version of its Smokies blog, called AllSmokies. It's now a collaborative blog with contributions from various East Tennessee bloggers, including Fletch of No Direction Home, where I found the link to this one. Check out Fletch's photo of Cosby, TN, from the Foothills Parkway.

Along the rivers

Beautiful view of the river from above; there are several drifting boats down there.... Posted by Picasa
They end up in Reliance, where this old building still stands...looks like its last use was as a store, but it seems to have been a lodge, school, and church, according to this history.

A nice place to land; you can rent a boat here and take a ride to the put-in upstream. (Hiwassee Outfitters or Webb Brothers)

Lots of water on the lower Ocoee, and lots of boats downstream. Posted by Picasa
