Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved. - Helen Keller

Just Driving...



I know, I know...With the price of gas who can afford to drive, but then I ask myself how much my sanity is worth to me and that by far outweighs anything gas could cost...

So...I drove around for about 4 hours the other day and enjoyed myself immensely and enjoyed being by myself...words can't express it. Anywho, on my little venture of the twisting, winding roads of Tennessee...I took some pictures and thought I would share them with you. Little pieces of beauty...at least through my eyes. These are the roads and other things of interest that grace the countryside near the ranch/farm that I work on from time to time.





























This is just so random, but I was driving down a little road and came upon this..I don't know if someone camps here or if it's just a place to rest tired feet...whatever...I thought it was cool, so here ya go...

Those pictures are absolutly beautiful. I love the little cemetary and the wooded area with the creek.

Leighann: Thank you. I thought that cemetery was pretty cool and it must be ages old. None of the markers have names, kind of creepy, but kind of cool..And the creek looked so refreshing I almost stripped down and got in...damn passer-bys kept me from it though ;-)

It looks very quiet and peaceful out there. Nice place to go and not be bothered by crowds.

Scarlett said...

Sage: Thank You...it was really nice....

Scarlett said...

Jay: It is...There are stretches for miles in any direction without any houses at all. It is an absolutely awesome thing to just be still and listen to nature from time to time...without interruption.
