One day as we were heading West on Upper Snake Road in Alabama we caught a glimpse of a beautiful hidden valley. We passed it quickly even doing our usual 35 mph. The road dips and curves to the left at the best vantage point and my guess is going the posted 50 mph you probably would never see it. We just had to turn around to take a second look and slow down a bit more for Mosey to capture the picture above. Only after seeing it on our computer did we notice the small herd of cows in the shade of the trees all the way at the end of the valley. Just as in life... don't blink or you'll miss it!!
You Might Be In The Country...

Somewhere in Morgan County, Alabama we came upon a not so common, or at least in these parts, equestrian crossing road sign. Who knows, Kentucky might be full of them. Not that folks don't own horses, because a lot do, but generally not in a way to warrant crossing signs. We couldn't tell if there was a local riding club or horseback riding trail or simply stables across the street from a working farm. Give us a wave if you know more about this sign.
A Beautiful Winding Road Through The Tennessee Hillside

The first thing that caught our attention on this little road was the overgrown road sign and really the name itself, Gnat Grove. At first glance, we thought the road was gravel, but as we drove further along, it was more of a rural tar and chip road, so didn't make it in our Gravel Road section. Even so, the beautiful Tennessee hillside was lush and green this time of year. As we enjoyed the hills and valleys, we came to an opening in the trees giving us a view of a large tree in the middle of a field on a hillside.
We saw several dear, but not until we came to a complete stop did we see them all. Upon a closer look there was a small herd of deer. Can you count them all?
There were a total of six deer taking advantage of the shade offered by this large tree. For us, it was very unusual to see that many deer around one o'clock in the middle of the afternoon! The wonderful treasures of God's creation, just around the corner…
