Week 15 – #35. Rocky Waterscapes

I had a tough time deciding whether this photo fit the theme “Rocky Waterscapes,” but after several reviews of the photo, I decided it did for four reasons. (1) There is water; (2) there are definitely rocks/riprap along the Tennessee River shoreline; (3) the piers which support the Walnut Street Bridge are stones from the old Stone Fort Land Company; and (4) heck, I was on vacation but got up before sunrise this particular morning so I could take this photo of the heavy fog!

Week 49 – #A4. My Hometown

Chattanooga, TN, my hometown, is the fourth largest city in the state of Tennessee and is located on the banks of the Tennessee River. Surrounded by Lookout Mountain, Signal Mountain, Elder Mountain and Missionary Ridge, the city sits in a “teacup” and is quite picturesque. As a little girl, the main industry was manufacturing but now is tourism. There is always something to do whether it be the many festivals downtown on the weekends, boating on the Tennessee River, hiking the various mountains, hang gliding, and much more. This photo will give you just a small sample of its beauty.

The Delta Queen was built in 1926 and at the time, she was the most lavishly appointed and expensive sternwheel passenger boat ever commissioned.  To read her history, go here.  In 2009, she was moored on the banks of the Tennessee River in Chattanooga and is now designated as a floating boutique hotel.
