I was up there last week, hitting all the music stores, Morrell's, Strings, etc. Love, love, love that area of Bristol! Thanks for the pics!

Beautiful Bristol pics! Very clear!

Thanks for the link about the Bristol Trainstation,very interesting.
Beautiful building that was definitely worth saving and kudos to the community for working to do so.

I'm ashamed to say I've never really explored the Tri-Cities due to their distance from me but I want to now more than ever!

STUNNING, STUNNING, STUNNING photos - as always! As you know, I live in Bristol and see it everyday, but your photos make it seem even more real that seeing it in person! That is an amazing camera, or you really know how to operate a camera!

I have tons of photos I have taken, but none as clear and crisp, with excellent views as these! Thanks for sharing!

Looks like those were all taken in the late evening... thats normally the time I drive home... I may have been driving by when those were taken (I normally take State St. home), but since the new bridge is open, I will be going up Anderson instead.
