July 29, 2012--- Traveled 38 miles in 5 hrs to mile 425.5 at Shellmound campground. Located a mile above Nickajack Lock & Dam. Enroute crossed time zone line at mile 451.7 from eastern time zone back into central time zone. Half the time we don't know what time it really is!
Small creek in center of picture is site of Brown's Ferry
at mile 458.6, an importrant event in the Civil War. It is here
 on the Tennessee River that Union troops brought
 50 wooden boats from Chattanooga. The boats were tied
side by side across the river and then planks were laid over
 the boats to make a crossing to carry supplies.

Area marked off with a
floating boundry to identify
a swimming area. Carol & Allen got wet.

After a little swimming
it was time for grilled hamburgers.
Carol cooked them while Maryann
prepared the vegetables.

Carol said Allen may belong to the
"white foot" tribe.
