Seen along an 8-mile walk near Baileyton (Greene Co.) today...

Walking over I-81:



Anyone know what this thing is? I assume it has something to do with cattle, but I'm not sure:



Here's a great way to get shot: snap a few pics of somebody's prize gamecocks! These guys were engaged in a spirited crowing competition with a bunch of their friends across the road, which is just one of many good reasons to check out an "idyllic place in the country" before you buy:



Now this is more like it! Dykes Hawkins Rd. is an absolutely wonderful place to walk. The water-filled ditches along both sides of the road were full of small fish, tadpoles & crawdads, while red-winged blackbirds and barn swallows darted overhead:





Ginormous house off Old Baileyton Road:



Barn shots:

Coming back home from Baileyton on Horton Highway, I spotted this pretty little pond:



I then took three different loop roads that connect to Horton Hwy.

Mountain Loop:



I love this house!



Fodderstack Mountain Loop:





And my favorite, Chimneytop Mountain Loop:

Beautiful pix, kamoshika. I love northern Greene; it's still so rural. Southern Greene County where I'm from is filled with houses now.

The thing you were asking about. I'd have to see it closer? It almost looks like a feeder (like for hay) but the only problem is as far as I can see there's no way to get the hay in there. Maybe one side opens up and you can put a round bale in there or square bales. It's too big for salt blocks. Eh, I really don't know? Weird. The bags or whatever hanging around the sides are odd, too.

I think someone else commented that these pictures really look like paintings.... it's so true, the colors really pop, they're amazing pictures....the picture with the caption "Coming back home from Baileyton on Horton Highway, I spotted this pretty little pond" would make a very good painting! I have no artistic ability unfortunately!

Once again, Kamoshika, your ability to capture light and color is truly inspiring. Are you sure you just use a small digital camera? I like the one from inside the barn and the shadow of the fence with the llama. Good stuff all around.

all great, but my faves this round are the three of Chimney Mtn Loop. I should probably stop looking at these for a while until I am closer to moving day....er, make that moving year! If I could take the financial loss on the housing mkt, I'd leave now! I remember being on 81 last year & with every mile further south, I kept thinking I'd found home at last! BTW, great tip about the idyllic land vs. the gamecock farm - I never even thought about that!
