Tennesse Road Trip - Scavenger Hunt Photos

I'm slowly working my way through purging, rating, and editing the 1200+ photos we took on our Tennessee road trip, some of which capture items for Rinda's 2013 Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt.

#6 - Someone or something taking a nap
As we toured Rock City in Chattanooga, we found little boy blue sleeping in the Mother Goose Village. The exhibits here were actually in a dark cavern and had a neon glow to them, however the flash was needed to capture the photos, which resulted in more natural colors.

#11 Animal in a zoo, aquarium, nature preserve, etc
Robbie spotted this tree snail on our hike to see Cataract Falls in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

#17 Candle(s)
On either side of the window in the dining room at Graceland, we discovered candles in beautiful candelabras. Can you see them there in the background?

Bonus/substitute - A person wearing an outfit (or item of clothing) that symbolizes your country
The Dixie Stampede show was full of people in outfits representing the USA. Unfortunately, no photos were allowed during the show itself. I snapped this photo with my cell phone (at a pretty good distance in terrible lighting) as we were exiting the arena.

I have four more items (plus one more bonus) to go to complete this summer's scavenger hunt. How are you doing on the hunt?


  1. Great job - your snail gives me a good idea for what to use for that prompt!

  2. I like that little Boy Blue - an unusual find - and of course the peep inside Graceland. Great!

  3. I have to agree with Sian - little boy blue is definitely a unique take on the napping prompt!

  4. Ahhh I remember the dark caverns of Rock city, when we were there (years ago) it was dinosaurs all aglow :)

  5. The snail is a good find! Loving the Stampede photo, too! :) I still got several items to find, but will hopefully manage, now that I found a windmill on the map (hopefully go to see it next week).

  6. Your photos for this challenge are so unique! I love it!

  7. Great snail photo and love Little Boy Blue. I have about 3 more items to get - hoping to go out over this weekend to get them :-)

  8. How interesting is the little Boy Blue! You have a nice collection,there with a super snail ...

  9. That snail is huge, great collection and hope you enjoy reliving your trip while sorting photos :)

  10. Oh how fun to see your pics for the hunt. I managed to get a few on one of our trips, now I just need to get a post completed. I still have many more to find.


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
