Well, I follow the logic. A place called:""Mauch Chunk" is not exactly going to jump off the map at you and say: "Visit Me"!!

Fall is effectively over, but here are some pictures from the Eastern Shore of Maryland from a few weeks ago.


The U.S. Route 50 bridge across the Choptank River from Cambridge.



The ruins of White March Church, in Talbot County. White Marsh Church was built in 1665 and was destroyed by fire in 1897.



Farmland along Maryland Route 328 in Talbot County.





Swampland and marshland along the Tuckahoe River.





Near where Maryland Route 328 crosses the Tuckahoe River, Frederick Douglass was born.



The Route 328 bridge was dedicated to Frederick Douglass in his honor.

Here are a few pictures from Chattanooga's Southside. The Southside is located just south of Downtown, and is the city's historic manufacturing and warehouse district. The Southside has been redevelopment and rehabilitation in the past 5 to 10 years.


W. Max Finley Stadium, home of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, and also home to the NCAA Division I Football Championship. The stadium was built in 1997.



A section of Carter Street, as it passes by W. Max Finley Stadium, has been honorarily renamed "Reggie White Boulevard" after Reggie White,



FirstTennessee Pavilion is an open-air, covered pavilion across Carter Street from Finley Stadium. The pavilion is host to the Chattanooga Market, and also hosts events that use Finley Stadium.



The Chattanooga & Tennessee River Power Company Substation, at 20th & Carter Streets. The substation was built around 1913 to provide power to Chattanooga from the newly-built Hales Bar Dam on the Tennessee River.



The Chattanooga & Tennessee River Power Company Substation is also known as the Parkway Towers. The building was going to be razed in 1997, but was saved. The building is now being planned for redevelopment.

That's a solid looking building. If it had been torn down, it would have been missed.

You must be busy lately, not as many posts

It definitely stuck out to me when I saw it (while tailgating for the Division 1-AA Title Game last year). That neighborhood has some nice Southern industrial grit, which I'd like to explore more if I ever get a chance to get down to Chattanooga again.

I haven't been posting much recently because my computer has gone crazy, and I am looking at a possible reinstallment of Windows or a new computer. Things are bad with this current one, and so I can't really work on new threads until it's fixed or replaced.

The first Christmas picture is interesting, snow on the ground and leaves on the large tree on the left.

I think that was because of the type of tree. You'll occasionally find stragglers that don't lose all of their leaves once the cold weather arrives. That also ended up being an early snow last year; we don't usually get snow in December.

Philadelphia's Christmas tree is located in John F. Kennedy Plaza, affectionately known as "Love Park", which is located between City Hall and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.

Rittenhouse Square is one of Philadelphia's ritziest neighborhoods. Many rowhouses are adorned with elegant Christmas decorations that fit the elegant houses.
