Time Travel Thursday, September 13, 2012

Hello my Bloggy Friends!
Let's time travel back to 2010, I know, not too far to travel, but still it is going back in time.
We have this lake here in Tennessee, called Reelfoot Lake.  The history of the lake is that it was formed or grew larger due to one of the largest earthquakes recorded in this area of the United States.

Between mid-December 1811 and mid-March 1812 a series of catastrophic earthquakes shook West Tennessee and the rest of the Central Mississippi Valley. Judging from reports and eyewitness accounts, the quakes would have measured among the highest ever recorded on the modern Richter scale. Some reports said that the quakes were strong enough to awaken sleepers in Washington, D.C., and allegedly some tremors were felt twelve hundred miles away in Quebec City, Canada.

My hubby and I took a weekend trip to Reelfoot Lake, it's not a tourist spot.  Mostly the lake is a fisherman's paradise, and, well, we don't fish.  But, we do take hikes and pictures.  Enjoy!!

 Family cemetery we found, cool point of view, huh?

 How did those get bent?  Oh, and I don't have a picture, but we disturbed a rather large snake while visiting this family cemetery.

 Little girl's gravesite.
 The trees at Reelfoot lake are very interesting. Yes, that's me!

Have a wonderful Thursday!!
