Tennessee - August 13, 2002

A brief return to Tennessee. US 421 from the state line to Bristol.

Entering Tennessee on US 421. [800x600][1600x1200]

It's a very winding road. [800x600][1600x1200]

A sign back in Boone told truckers to consider alternate routes because of switchbacks. [800x600][1600x1200]

Unlike the usual switchbacks, where you go one way then turn sharply, then the other for a while, and turn sharply, most of these were quick "S" curves, one after another. [800x600][1600x1200]

More curves. [800x600][1600x1200]

The road crosses the Appalachian Trail. [800x600][1600x1200]

There's the trail, northbound. [800x600][1600x1200]

Walk several hundred miles up this way and there's North Adams. [800x600][1600x1200]

A picture, probably taken by mistake in Bristol, Tennessee. The signs in Bristol that lead to I-81 seem to take a very long and twisted route through the city. [800x600][1600x1200]
