My Old Stomping Ground

 My mother used to call this area her old stomping ground.  These photos were made near Norris, Tennessee, at and around the Norris Dam area.  My mother graduated from Norris High School.  I could say it is my old stomping grounds, too, since I have been to these beloved sights so often in my life.  They all hold a special place in my heart and it was so wonderful to visit them again recently after a long absence.

There may be a more beautiful place on earth than east Tennessee, but I have not seen it.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! Some of my ancestors came from near Trezvant, TN, and they talked about its beauty until the end of their days. I don't think I've ever seen an ugly picture of Tennessee.

Such a pretty and serene place Cindy. I like all of them but the one with the water wheel is special to me. I suppose because we don't have these over here. The one thing I loved about America was the old time things all around. They bring back the pioneers of yesteryear.. and tantalize our minds with those endearing days. xx Much love to you.xx
