Back on the road, we came to a quaint, general store just in time for a snowball fight!
Natural Stone Bridge in the Park
Just when we thought we'd seen the most beautiful farmland ever . . .
Southern hospitality is no myth! Notice the silver car stopping traffic so we could get a good shot of the Palace Theater in Crossville.
Headed to Pickett Memorial State Park
The star of this trip was absolutely the journey along TN-28 N/US-127 N! During the peak of fall color, a light snow came through just before we began our journey up the Highway from I24, just west of Chattanooga (exit 155.)
While in Whitwell, hunger struck, and we wandered into Johnny's Hook N Grill for lunch. After noticing the drive-thru, our expectations plummeted, but we were really hungry. Lunch was delicious! The fish tacos with light, crispy homemade shells were perfect, and the cheeseburger was a solidly good burger. It would be great to have this kind of drive-thru closer to home!
