Driving in Tennessee - August 12, 2002

Ride through Tennessee including I-75, checking out Knoxville, and I-40 into the mountains.

Arrival in Tennessee on I-75 south. [800x600][1600x1200]

Yes, I-75 south. [800x600][1600x1200]

Approaching Knoxville. [800x600][1600x1200]

Getting off into Knoxville, heading toward the odd golden sphere thing. [800x600][1600x1200]

The "Sun Sphere" if I remember my Simpsons history. And I thought Bart and friends knocked it down and spilled out the wigs that were being stored in there. [800x600][1600x1200]

A neat building in Knoxville. [800x600][1600x1200]

Knoxville. [800x600][1600x1200]

Lots of US highways in Knoxville. [800x600][1600x1200]

And interstates, too. [800x600][1600x1200]

Knoxville underpass. [800x600][1600x1200]

Onto I-40 east. [800x600][1600x1200]

There was a camper fire (it was gutted) just being put out westbound, backing up traffic for several miles. [800x600][1600x1200]

Yes, still I-40 east. I guess I took this twice. [800x600][1600x1200]

Approaching I-81's southern terminus. [800x600][1600x1200]

I-81 North begins soon. So this trip has already passed just north of the northern terminus of I-81 on the 1000 Islands Parkway in Ontario. And now the southern terminus. [800x600][1600x1200]

And there's the ramp. OK. Enough. [800x600][1600x1200]

And now I-40 gets interesting. Speed limits are lowered, lanes narrow, and mountains rise in all directions. [800x600][1600x1200]
