These structures are furnaces that were used from 1855 to 1856 to produce iron taken from the region. See below for the entire story.

Tennessee - Southern Hospitality

The rays of the sun brighten the early morning as I crossed the border into Tennessee.

It was a long hilly trail on the Trace Drive between the Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkely, but once I reached Tennessee, the road flattened out and I was greeted by a large group of cyclists who called themselves “Bikers for Christ”.

CIMG1558 Advertising the Faith

Above: I ended up in the boondocks on a road called “Ugly Creek Road” -- Strange feeling to see many such signs as the one above which warns that “survivors will be prosecuted”. Hmmm... makes you wonder if the owner makes “Moonshine”

Continue on to Alabama

These cars were on someone’s front lawn. Probably would be a good idea to toss them in a furnace.

CIMG1567 All you can eat

No, I didn’t eat here. It is impossible to ride a bike on a full stomach.

Ugly Creek” isn’t that ugly. In fact, it is crystal clear.
