Valley View

View from the "domain". (Click picture for larger view) Posted by Picasa
"It was a comfort in those succeeding days to sit up and contemplate the majestic panorama of mountains and valleys spread out below us and eat ham and hard boiled eggs while our spiritual natures reveled alternately in rainbows, thunderstorms, and peerless sunsets. Nothing helps scenery like ham and eggs." ~ Mark Twain (1835-1910), Roughing It.
Nyssa took three pictures from the mountain, the "domain" of the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee. I took them and used a program called PhotoStitch to put them together. While I'm not fond of the school and the social policies there, it is a beautiful campus and area, especially if you are one who loves isolation. With the nearest Walmart a good 25 minute drive, down the mountain and a town with the population of only 2000 (and I don't know if this counts the students), it is as far off the beaten path as you can get. This is the view towards the southwest, Alabama off in the distance.

This PhotoStitch program is fun. I'll have to try it again soon.
