Well, it was more like a working vacation, but pretty great nonetheless. I took this photo of Tellico Lake at sunset (click to enlarge). The lake was created when the Tennessee Valley Authority built a dam that was completed in 1979 (which was very controversial at the time). Tellico Lake has more than 300 miles of shoreline in eastern Tennessee, just at the bottom of the Smoky Mountains, where good ol' boys proudly tell hillbilly jokes.
Other than a little whiplash from a jetski mishap, fun was certainly had, even when I was working. But it's good to be home. Will do my best to get caught up on Polis posts soon.
