I-24 Rest Stop, Tennessee River at Nickajack Lake - Tennessee just north of the border with Alabama

June 20, 2013

View from the rest stop looking northward.
[Large body of water with a two-arched bridge passing over it. Rolling green hilltops backdrop the water.]

Great blue heron flying over the lake.
[The heron flies about three feet above the water's surface with its wings in a vee above its body. A faint reflection of the bird is visible on the water's surface. On the far side of the lake the rocky hillside meets the guardrail for the road.]

Sweet gum tree leaves.
[Light-green five-pointed star shaped leaves with darker-green veins handing from the branches overhead. A white blot of sunshine sits at the edge of one leaf.]

US-62 scenic viewpoint overlooking the White River in the Ozarks in Northernwestern Arkansas

Two bridges crossing the river under there somewhere.
[A railroad bridge angles from the lower left towards the middle of the image while a road bridge angles from the lower right to the middle of the image. Both viewable sections of the bridges start and end in the greenery of trees so it's not possible to see from where they come or to where they go. The valley and nearby hillsides are full of leaf-bearing trees.]

One section of the White River.
[A thin section of sunlit blue sits amidst the thickly treed area. A grass knoll is in the foreground.]

Another section of the White River.
[This section of the river's water has a green cast to it as it sits amidst all the trees and greenery which comes right up to the water's edge.]
