We spent a week in Heiskell, visited the nearby museum/home of the Manhattan Project and then went hiking!!
|Manhattan Project National Historical Park|
|arial of the "Secret City" site of the Manhattan Project|
Beginning to see more wineries!! Had to take home a bottle from
the Blueslip Winery
We were close to Knoxville and found at least one good
|nice little falls on the roadside|
Our first hike took us down to the
Twin Arches. These are the
largest sandstone arches east of
the Mississippi. Several slippery
ladders to navigate but well
worth the beauty!!
|view from top of the north arch|
walking across the top of the south arch
lots of deteriorated tree stumps covered in their own miniature world of lichen, fungus and tiny plants, just beautiful
