Panoramic View of Hottin' Holler
I was fooling around with my camera the other day and took this panoramic picture of the holler. The locals called it "Hottin' Holler" and we figure it might be because we have a lot of barred owls and they get rather vocal at night! Or it could be the coyotes (but then it would be called "Howlin' Holler"!). The picture is slightly distorted because it is panoramic, but gives the general idea. I was hoping the leaves were more turned but they never do get real, real bright here like they do up north and we have been in a drought which caused them to start turning earlier in the summer and not look as nice.
Rabbits cookin' coffee -- that's what the locals call it. But here in this little hollow in East Tennessee, when the hills surrender their misty hostage to reveal the stalwart cedars growing by the stream in our pasture, I know there is no place on earth I would rather be. The welcome mat is out! Come and sit on the porch and chat with me awhile!
