Tennessee 

Chattanooga- rock forms to peak: the highway is busier here. The scenery makes up for our slowed pace. In places, ragged rock of amber, brown and grey color frame the road shoulders. High up on hill, large houses look out over the landscape. Cherokee influence is on the many signs . Roadside crosses memorialize loved ones. Dilapidated barns butt against modern homes.  Relics of the past echoed in advertisements for antique-ing. My stomach does somersaults, maybe it’s the Krystals, but it’s more likely the rise and fall of the highway as it cuts through the mountains.  550 miles till home.
