Hey this is really interesting! I do think that it's funny that the town in Tennessee with the highest elevation is called Shady Valley.

How's this for a challenge: let's see if we can find pictures from all of these places, maybe sometime this winter when there's a nice blanket of snow?

Well that 600-foot elevation doesn't include your tall frame...

Or I could climb to the top of the WSMV tower and then I'd be as tall as Coalmont.

I don't know where all those places are. But I see at least a few of them are on the Plateau.

I was wondering the same thing. Somehow I don't think it's the Midway in Roane County.

There are 22 populated places in TN named "Midway" and the highest one's in Washington County.
