I love the snow on the mountains. This was this afternoon on the hill by Hamilton Place. Was worth getting my shoes all muddy!

nice shots! If walls could talk, I bet that burger bar could tell some stories!

I've only been to TN once (so far), I didn't realize there was such a difference in elevation to get snow in the hills but not in town.

<sigh..> I can't wait to get back there.

Great shots Bailey. I love some of the majestic mtn views around here. With the snow on them, the smokies (our mountains are pretty smokey... even if they're not in the GSMNP) look almost eerie... and at the very least, majestic!

There were some people at Target yesterday from Mountain City. They had at least six inches on their van, still. Brrr.

kiwishmiwi, love that shot of the Burger Bar! Where is it located?

Bailey, I can never get enough of snow-covered mountains...thanks for those great views!

Here's a quirky piece of folk art I like. It's on the same Sulphur Springs farm with the gate silhouette piece:



On the east side of Sulphur Springs:

Great pictures, Kamoshika.

I like the third one the best.

I ventured from Kingsport over to Carter Co. today in search of some real snow, not this wimpy half-inch stuff we tend to get. I first drove up to Ripshin Lake, a small private lake near the town of Roan Mountain. At 3500 feet, Ripshin Lake's setting is reminiscent of the Adirondacks. Only a lucky few live along its shoreline.



Rolling hills next to the lake:





I then decided to head on up to the top of Roan Mountain, though I was a little leery of hazardous road conditions. I didn't have any trouble except for the last 2-mile stretch, where most of the road was covered with snow and ice. The views from up there, as always, made the extra effort worth it. And the snow was 6-8" deep with drifts as high as 5 feet, so I was doubly pleased.

Kamoshika, This last set of pictures are just award winning. I love the quaintness of the lakeside picture.
The picture that is second to last is also cool, I love em all!

When I was at Roan Mountain back in October 2008, I did the same thing as you. I stopped right in the middle of the road and took a picture of the icicles along the roadway. I was fascinated. \


Once again, Great pictures!

Thanks, JoshB! Roan Mountain's a very special place that I've frequented since I was in high school. I still have a picture of a couple of friends posing with those giant icicles almost 30 year ago.
